Jehovah's Witnesses Convention Notebooks for children aged 8-15
Click here for workbooks for little kids) We are excited about this year's convention workbook for kids and teens This is a comprehensive, fun, yet educational workbook that will appeal to many age groups, but especially kids and teenagers from ages 8-15, set out in a fun "comic book" format.
We've put a lot of your suggestions into practice this year coming out with a special activity book just for pre-teens and teens. 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.

Let's Put It to Practice
All throughout the design process, our focus has been: "What are the kids and teens going to get out of the program?"
Every single talk has this place to keep track of the scriptures read. (Longer talks have more space.)
Things That I Would Like to Apply
The entire focus of the workbook is the child's spirituality and how she is applying what she's learning. To that end, every talk has a large box for your boy or girl to note down key take-aways.
Explain Your Beliefs
At appropriate times throughout the workbook, sections are included to help the young ones think about how to explain their beliefs regarding the particular theme at hand.
Time to Apply
Viewpoint questions are brought out at appropriate times for your son or daughter to explain how she or he would put into practice the given counsel in specific real-life examples.
For Personal Reflection
Throughout the workbook find sections marked "for personal reflection." These sections include thought-provoking questions that encourage young ones to reflect on what they learn. This example compares needs versus wants. Other examples include:
- What abilities and skills do you have? Can you think of ways that these abilities can be used to praise Jehovah?
- This sister did cart witnessing all day and not one person stopped. What qualities of Jesus have helped her to endure
- When facing trials, how can you stay patient and strong, like Paul?
Where appropriate, specific sections prompt the young one to set a goal. Examples include:
- My short term goals
- Four qualities of Jesus that I want to imitate
- How am I going to take care of the plants at my Assembly Hall and my Kingdom Hall
- What changes have you already made to please God, and what further changes would you like to make?
Who doesn't like stickers, right!? A whole page of sticker emojis are provided to emphasize something that stood out, or even if something was humorous or otherwise outstanding.
Extra activities are scattered throughout the workbook for longer talks. Each one is related to the theme of the talk. These include crosswords, letter jumbles, break the code puzzles, and more word puzzles.
Throughout the activity book, there are Bible quizzes related to the talk.
- "Plan Ahead" goal-planning sections
- "Review Question" at the end of each talk
- "Screen-free" activities for lunch breaks
- Page for collecting autographs and musings of their friends
- "Congratulations" page for reflection at the end of the program
- Report Card
- Cutout Diploma
- Special page for Family Worship review
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 kids pay attention and stay focused. Three days is a looooong time to sit still! Our convention notebooks are especially for children and teenagers between 8 and 15 years old, although many adults have said they enjoy them too! ;)
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. Fun emoji stickers can be placed throughout with messages like "Love This!" "Super!" "Star" "Superb!" "LOL" "Amazing!" among others.
What makes our children's convention activity books so special?
Over 700 hours of brainstorming, research, planning, artwork and graphics design were done using tools that included the Insight books and JW Library app. The final product is the result of 9 helpers from 3 continents to come up with scripturally accurate activities that are in line with each talk being given. The final product has over 80 pages.
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. Check out this video blog of the making of a previous year's kids workbooks.

Children's Convention Notebooks (both past and present) at the bottom of the page. Here is a sampling:
The convention books for children are great! Better than I imagined. I got these for my grandchildren so they could have an easier time following along. And because their attention naturally strays at least it can continue to be occupied by spiritual things. SO adorable! Oh how I wish these things were available when I was little!
Marlo S. says:
Absolutely love the variety of activities. We can use this for weeks beyond the Convention for review and Family Worship activities.
Christine S. says:
I purchased these for my grandchildren but found even my grown children enjoy working the puzzles and quizzes. They absolutely love them. Well illustrated. Nice even for adults! Lots of fun things to do! Quality appearance. Will buy, again! Thank you!
