General Conference Mini Coloring Book - If I Listen With My Heart

Since I focused on Easter this month and since the Primary is singing in sacrament meeting, I'm having this week's lesson focus more on General Conference.

**PLEASE NOTE: The original mini coloring book that I got the idea from is here.  

Lesson:  Use the mini coloring book to review If I Listen With My Heart.  Emphasize, for those who can't read, that they know all the words in this book.  Talk about how we need to listen with our hearts during General Conference so we can feel the Spirit.  Maybe compare just listening with our ears and listening with our hearts.  With our ears, we can hear.  With our hearts, we can feel. Share experiences and ask for theirs.  Sing a few times with the book so they can "read" it to someone in their family.

All images were found on Coloring Pages at The lyrics to the song were copied and pasted from as well.

OPTION: I printed the mini coloring book on one side of the sheet of paper, then copied another General Conference activity on the back for the children to open up and do during Conference.  I did a Bingo card for the Junior Primary and a Note-Taking sheet for Senior Primary.  Both emphasize LISTENing.

2. Print Optional Worksheet and Copy to the back of the PDF

3. Fold and Cut
Youtube video or follow my picture instructions below. 
Use a popsicle stick to get a strong crease

There'll be be a slight slit in the worksheet, but totally functional.  Enjoy General Conference!

I bought these pens at Zurchers at 12 for $8
After note:  The lesson went well.  I think will help the needed review for the 2nd and 3rd verse especially.  We gave them a click-pen for Easter to go with their little book and to mark their scriptures. 


  1. Rad! Thank you for sharing!!!

  2. This is so great! Thank you!

  3. Thank you so much for your time in putting this together and for sharing it. I am floored that each picture (from a church approved source) completely captures the message of each verse.
