IMPORTANT: This page is currently under construction and details may change. We are diligently working on the initial set-up and designs of our 2023 convention notebooks and other supplies, while we await the release of the convention program by the Branch. In the meantime, all of the information below is with reference to last year's workbooks.
Regrettably, if your convention is any earlier than
June 10th, we may not be able to get you a physical workbook on time. (Proverbs 11:2) Downloadable versions will be available.
Jehovah's Witnesses Convention Notebooks for children aged 8-13
Click here for workbooks for little kids) We are excited about this year's convention workbook for pre-teens This is a comprehensive, fun, yet educational workbook that will appeal to many age groups, but especially those from ages 8-13.
We've put a lot of your suggestions into practice this year coming out with a special activity book just for pre-teens. You've requested more space to write notes, and now you have it. Each talk has a good portion dedicated to note-taking, scripture-copying and a brief activity in line with the talk's theme. The feature of this more advanced children's notebook is on note taking and applying the lessons learned. Take a look at the video to get a preview of these features.
This is the hard copy version! We will mail it to you.

Time To Apply
All throughout the design process, our focus has been: "What are the kids and pre-teens going to get out of the program?"
Note down which scriptures are read.
Things that I would like to apply
Nearly every single talk has
Things I would like to apply boxes to help the child to follow along in taking notes.
Complete the Text
Many scriptures from each talk are pre-filled in, with blank spaces for the child to "complete the text."
Where appropriate, specific goals are encouraged. In the example, the talk is about "Love for God's Word."
Children are encouraged to meditate on what they're learning. In the example, the talk is about "Boasting."
For Personal Reflection
The example is during a talk about "Love for Neighbor". Some other examples of "personal reflection":
- Why I need to listen to my mom and dad
- What do you like to do for family worship?
- List three people that you would like to start a study with
What Does the Bible Say?
Appropriate points that can be used in the ministry, based on the talk.
Brief questions to encourage your child to pay attention. In the example, the talk is about " Dishonesty."
Brief activities, in line with the theme at hand, help the child to use what he's learning in a real-world example.
Crosswords, Word Search and other Puzzles
Most of the exceptionally long talks have an activity such as a crossword puzzle, letter unscrambler or word search puzzle.
Designed for paying attention
We've designed this to be, not a distraction, but a help for paying attention. As you parents all know, getting the kids to sit still for hours on end is a huge challenge. Kudos to you moms and dads that are helping your youngsters pay attention and stay focused, especially with the convention being held right in your own living room! Our convention notebooks are especially for children between 8 and 13 years old.
Measuring 8.5" x 11" (21.3cm x 28cm) each notebook is made especially for the
2023 "Exercise Patience"! Regional Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses and has the theme for the convention pre-printed on the front.
What makes our children's convention activity books so special?
You can't get Bible activity books at the book store. They will invariably have unscriptural details. By contrast, the
2023 “Exercise Patience” activity workbooks by Ministry Ideaz were designed from the ground up. And with so many talks and parts on the convention program, it's been a lot of work. Over 200 hours of work were logged in the production of this quality product that is scripturally accurate.
Take a look at the making of last year's kids workbooks:
Read what others have said about our
Children's Convention Notebooks (both past and present) at the bottom of the page. Here is a sampling:
Erika M. says:
Fantastic for kids who are early readers or have a good understanding of English. Our 11 year old filled the pages with notes during each session and even enjoyed the other activities after the session was over. Our 8 year old had some difficulty with a few of the activities however he looks for the place where he can check off the words he heard Read more about review stating Great for the 6 week sessions.
Cindy B. says:
Great activity book for children. I bought 3 books for children ages 3, 7 and 11. They all enjoyed using it. The 7 year old used it for the entire session. It kept her interest. The others enjoyed using it also.
Ty Z. says:
We have been getting convention workbooks for several years now and I am so happy to have found them. My children look forward to and love these workbooks. It has helped our family pay more attention to the program parts and was also wonderful last year in helping them to “share their notes” from the convention with friends and family as well as our service group over zoom. We love looking back at each year’s highlights and memories. Thanks so much for all your hard work on these!
