This week, I am going to do a Father's Day activity that I found online at Priming Singing Time. The blogger says, "This year I walked around the building taking pictures of Dad's hands and writing down their favorite primary song. It's really easy and you can show the pictures on a laptop or tablet, or print them out. The idea is to have the kids guess who's hands they are, and see if they can recognize their own Dad's hands."
This way, I have some fathers, grandfathers, and those who plan to be fathers one day in the mix. I kept a notepad with me and wrote down the name of the favorite song and the name of the teacher so that I could keep all of my pictures in order.
For example, I drew onto a poster board for "I Wonder When He Comes Again,":
I also cut out a flip chart I found on SugarDoodle and made it into a poster (because I have so many flip charts). This is for "I Lived in Heaven."
I already had materials for some of the other songs that fathers selected, so I was able to save time on not having to make those ones again.
For instance, I have had the children sing, "I Hope They Call Me on a Mission," before using these objects:
I am super excited that one of the father selected "I Am Like a Star." This is such a short song that they will learn it fast, with some fun motions, or with sign language. I am debating which to do right now.
There are some other songs on the list as well ... looking forward to a fun Sunday!
