NOTE: If you are struggling with Father’s Day in primary, Micah, on the Chorister’s FB group shared her feelings HERE that I thought might help with being sensitive to those children who may not have an active father-figure in their life. She writes:
For this activity, you will need 6 bow ties and 6 long ties. I created this document:
- Daddy’s Homecoming p. 210
- Father’s p. 209
- My Dad p. 211
- A Happy Family p. 198
- Quickly I’ll Obey p. 197
- I Know My Father Lives p. 5
- 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 “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)
To use in primary, you’ll need to draw 12 different dad’s heads on the board, like pictured above. Scatter the ties around the room. Pick a good singer to pick a long tie, and another good singer to pick a bow tie. The long tie will tell you what to sing and the bow tie will tell you what action to do as you sing the song.
If the songs you are singing are unfamiliar, make sure to post words like I to HERE.
