General Conference Mosaic



First of all, I've just got to say that I guessed correctly (on my Fantasy General Conference bracket) that the choir would be wearing purple yesterday, and I got basically every other guess wrong!  Oh well, at least their brightly colored choir dresses made for a colorful General Conference-inspired mosaic!


In between munching on Conference cake, and lounging in pajamas, this is what we've been creating together this morning.


And it has been so much fun!  We used the left-over contact paper and tissue paper squares from a similar Christmas craft that we did this year (the stained-glass stable craft).  Never before did I notice how much the organ resembles the outline of a temple.  Something to think about as you watch today!


I hung the contact paper, sticky side out on a window.  I drew a very rough outline of the Conference center, and the kids are having fun placing tissue paper squares all over this thing.  We've still got more to do, but what better time than watching General Conference together today.  Enjoy!!

  1. How cool is that mosaic! My boys did lego building during conference, and we even built a small Sacramento temple, complete with a storm trooper attendee (it was the only white clothed lego person we had). Good food and good words from our prophets make a good conference weekend!

  4. Such a great idea! Here in Australia we have the General Broadcast a week later, so I am busy getting everything together for this weekend. I am adding this to our list of activities!

  5. I am intrigued about the Fantasy General Conference Bracket! What--besides the color that the choir wears-- do you include in it?
