How to Incorporate Father's Day into Singing Time

In my opinion, there are 2 different ways to incorporate Father’s Day into singing time:

  1.  Use a Father’s Day themed activities that can be sung with ANY song.  These are perfect for reviewing for your upcoming Primary program or singing something seasonal!
  2. Teach Primary songs relating to fathers (directly or indirectly!).  Teach these songs to sing in sacrament meeting or simply just for fun!
