if you’re looking for some great, quiet LDS activities for your kids for general conference, FHE, or even sacrament meeting, then you have come to the right place! check out these word searches i posted for my kids (and yours) for general conference a while ago. and don’t forget to take a look at the 4 NEW ONES! so even if you think you got them last time you stopped by, you should check them out again and see what’s new!! (just scroll down this post!) i’ve also recently made even more! check out these four additional lds temple word searches and three other temple-themed word searches! and if you’re really into word searches right now, here are 20 printable Halloween word searches in varying levels of difficulty a friend of mine made.
also, don’t miss out on this free printable I SPY GENERAL CONFERENCE EDITION!
*update!! >> i’ve updated the “12 apostles” word search since two new apostles were called during the april 2018 general conference! so if you have the old one already in your dry-erase book for kids, you can swap it out with the new one, below:
i am so excited that general conference is coming! it really gets me thinking about having and preparing special church-related activities for my kids. my oldest kid is really into word searches and crossword puzzles these days, so i thought it would be fun to make a few of the former for him to have for general conference time.
having said that, these would be great for family home evenings or to keep your child happily occupied during sacrament meetings (to see how you could make a dry-erase book to house these word searches for multiple uses, you can hop on over to my diy dry-erase book for kids post).
i currently have three lds word searches available: latter-day prophets, book of mormon, and articles of faith. you can use them simply as word searches, or add in an extra little activity as described below each respective picture….
for the latter-day prophets word search, i got out the latter-day prophets matching game that i made for general conference a while ago. we didn’t use it as a matching game this time around, though – once we found the prophets’ name we tried to find his picture in order to identify all 16.
for the book of mormon word search, we got out our scriptures and when we found one of the books in the word search we’d also search for the book in the book of mormon. kind of like scripture mastery but way easier!
for the articles of faith word search, there are key words that we needed to find. once we found a keyword we tried to figure out which article of faith it belonged to! this was also a fun way to show my kids where we can find the articles of faith in the scriptures.
whether you decide to use these “extra” activities with your kids or you just want to have something quiet for them to do during church meetings and general conference, i hope you have as much fun searching for all the words with your kids as i did with mine!

Thanks! We have the Newfoundland General Conference coming up in three weeks and these will be a great addition to staving off the boredom of the Primary class.
Awesome! Glad you can use them!
Thanks so much for the word searches, I have older boys and so hard to keep them interested in conference. So appreciate this!
Thank you for doing these! I am very grateful!!
We printed these off this morning, thank you so much for sharing! <3
No problem. 🙂

Thanks, Josie! I’m so glad you like them!

Thank you so much for these!!! They’re so cute too. With our new apostles now do you think you might be willing to make a new word search for the 12 apostles? 🙂
I’ll definitely put it on the list Heather!!
Would you mind if I made copies of a few of these to give to my primary kids for General Conference?
You’re more then welcome to do so!
I just want to say thank you for these great word search printables! I found your site on pinterest last conference and used them and was happy to print them again for this conference for my kids! (Especially the updated apostles, thank you!!!) Thank you for using your talents to help the rest of us! It is appreciated!
You’re most welcome!

Hi, I love your printables! I am having problem printing them though…..they are all printing out humongous no matter if I reduce the printing size. Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks!
Hey Sharon! Glad you like them. No one else has said anything about printing problems and they’ve always printed just fine for me. Hope you figured it out! Katie

I’m unable to print them correctly as well. Whenever i print, I get the top left quarter of the page. I’ve tried scaling it in my printer options and nothing is working.
Hi Kitara! I don’t know why they’re not printing for you. They print fine for me and with only one exception I haven’t heard of anyone else having problems printing. They’re PDF files, so after downloading them as such, there’s really not a lot I can do as the problem is likely between your computer and printer. So sorry! I hope you get it working soon! 🙂
I just wanted to add that I too am having problems printing. No matter what scale I use I only get the top 1/4 of the page.
i’m so sorry it’s not working for you! are the pdf’s showing up in full on your screen before printing? if so, it must be a printer setting or some setting on the computer because however it looks when you open it is how it should print. maybe try “fit to page” or “full page” when you go to print? let me know if you still need help.
Bless your soul!!! Thank you so much! I just started teaching in primary and these are the best! Useful/relevant stuff is hard to find for little, busy ones. I can’t begin to tell you how much i appreciate your post (and for making it free!)
-No problem printing or making copies for me-
Glad to hear it Paige! You are most welcome!
Thank you so much for providing these. It is a huge help for my kids and a huge help for me. You are a true minister 🙂
Thanks so much for these cute printables!
You’re very welcome! 🙂
Thanks so much for taking the time to make these and share!!!
You are very welcome! Thanks for commenting! 🙂
THANK YOU THANK YOU!! For providing something that I could never provide for myself or my family. These activities certainly help my 5 young children release some wiggles during listening to a talk in General Conference so I can still have them in the room quietly. Thanks again! So darling!
You are so welcome! Thanks so much for your comment!! 🙂

The Utah Temples word find is missing Cedar City. Do you have an updated version?
I do not have an updated version! Thanks for asking. I will need to get that done before the next General Conference.
