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.

Hi. I just wanted to tell you how great I think your lessons are. I am 20, just got married and moved into my first family ward. I immediately got called to be the primary chorister. I would be lying if I told you it didn't make me want to throw up. (and still does) But I've relied a lot on your website and it has saved me. I'm still learning and getting better and I'm just so grateful for your hard work and the lesson ideas I have gotten from you.
That makes me so happy to hear – I love that you find my website helpful and useful! Thank you for taking the time to comment. Hopefully you feel differently about this calling by the time you get released :). You'll do great!
THANK YOU soooooo much!! Your visual aids are amazing. I am not the crafty type- what I envision rarely comes out.
Your site helps me so much. I was called to Chorister and lets say I was not happy at all. Not to mention I am sooo busy between working, my side hustle/small business franchise thing and the work I do with at local middle school and wanting to find a husband (LOL) I could not fathom doing it without your site.
I LOVE your ideas! Thank you for all of your hard work and sharing with us. This site has helped me so much as chorister.
