It Actually Worked!

Yummy scones. A Sunday morning conference tradition since being introduced to it by the Gealtas'.

My kids sat though all four sessions of conference this year! No I am not lying. I made these little chalkboards from a 1$ clipboard from Walmart and chalkboard spray paint. I got the idea from another blog. I modified it a bit to my needs. I then attached the coolest conference packet that I found at Sugardoodle. Add Some new Roseart washable markers and some chalk and you have nearly eight hours of busy work. During the afternoon sessions we played the word color game mentioned in the Ensign. Saturday we played with Skittles and Sunday we played with M&M's. Even Ruby was listing hard for the key words. I am so doing this again in October.

I am thinking of adding a pocket on the back to keep chalk and earaser. Anyone have ideas on how to do that?
