Looking for Primary Music for Father's Day?

But celebrating Father’s Day in singing time can be tricky.  If your Primary is singing in sacrament meeting on Father’s Day, I recommend singing the Primary song Fathers.  However, if you’re simply looking to recognize Father’s Day, definitely try the Father’s Day Toolbox activity!

But you really can’t go wrong with any of these suggestions!  These Father’s Day Primary singing time ideas are divided into categories (click on the link to jump to that section):

And by all means, if you have a Father’s Day singing time activity to add, please leave a comment!!
