Help dad get ready by putting on his tie! This dad’s ties poster is a perfect Father’s Day singing time activity! Review any songs whether they be Father’s Day themed or not!
Diana shared her idea HERE which is SO clever! She says:
Tell them that this father is having a hard time deciding which bow tie to wear for Father’s Day and he needs their help.They choose a bow tie out of a bag and sing whichever song/verse is on the back well enough that the bow tie rises up into place so Dad can see how he looks in it.Some ties are repeat song/verses in order to have more ties.
Access these printables at the Resource Library. Instructions for accessing the Resource Library are found at the bottom of this post.
Print everything on card stock and cut out. Laminate the ties. Mount the head on a white poster board and draw in the chest as pictured above.
Songs to Sing
Write the names of songs you want to sing on the back of the ties. Use a dry erase marker on the laminated ties and you can reuse the ties every year!
Sing Father’s Day themed songs, review for your upcoming Primary program or sing some classics! The options are endless!
An additional option is to add a fun way to sing each song! Perhaps with some fathers “actions” like:
- Hammer (pass out pencils to tap)
- Drive a car (pass out paper plates and “drive”)
- Mow the lawn (“pull a string” action then roll arms like the old fashioned push-mowers)
- Read scriptures (do the “wave” while the kids create “scripture hands” starting at one side of the room going to the other – you lead the wave with a set of scriptures)
- Play sports (pass around a ball and play hot potato)
- Grill (use a pancake spatula to “flip” from one side of the room to the other – one side sings while the other side hums)
Singing Time Idea
For the activity, have children choose a tie out of a bag and sing what is on the back of the tie. The better the children sing, pull the string from the back of the poster, making the tie rise up to the father’s neck.
