Here is an idea from Christy's Clipart

 My Heavenly Father Loves Me – For Violin with piano accompaniment

My Heavenly Father Loves Me (Flipchart) by Mary Ann Clements

Watch the sign language video for this song from the Church's Website.  Scroll down and click on song.

We had fun reviewing "My Heavenly Father Loves Me". I had objects or pictures for each line. The children's favorites were "....I feel the rain on my face..." - a spray bottle sprayed up in the air so the drops fall on your face and "...the wind as it rushes by..." - a balloon pump to pump air as you run across the front of the room. It's fun to involve more of the senses, and it's also hard to find a good visual for the wind!!  (Idea by Elaine in California)

Have the children clap the rhythm as you sing the song to help them become familiar with it. Help them make up simple actions to match key words in the song. Invite the children to do the actions without singing while the music plays and then sing and do the actions together. (2014 Primary Outline)

Teach LDS Children

My Heavenly Father Loves Me, song flipchart [pdf] - Each page corresponds to two lines/phrases of music.  There are no words on these helps, just pictures to help the children remember the words.  Each page is meant to be printed on half a sheet of paper.  After I print the pages out I cut the pages in half and tape over-size popsicle sticks to back to make it easier for me or a child to hold.  Hopefully this helps!  (Shared by Elizabeth Lewis / ga02082013)

My Heavenly Father Loves Me Cards by Amy Snyder

I taught this a few years ago, and had good success. What I did was have the children make the visuals. I sang the song as I walked slowly around the room, and I handed each class a 11x17" piece of cardstock (and crayons) as I sang the line that their class would draw the picture for. Each line in this song can be easily drawn. I think I gave "Or look at the blue, blue sky" to the sunbeams...... Then one child from each class would come up and tell us what their line was, and hold the visual as we sang. They loved it. I think I still have the adorable pictures they drew!

My Heavenly Father Loves Me by Ondrea Slade - Song Flipchart

Camille's Primary Ideas - Part 1, Part 2

Flipchart made by Jolly Jen

When I taught this song for the CSMP, I drew pictures of all the things mentioned in the first verse-a bird singing, a blue piece of construction paper with a couple of white clouds on it, a face with raindrops falling on it, a cloud with a mouth blowing like the wind, etc.  I put the pictures in clear pocket protectors and mixed them up and handed them out to the kids and they had to put themselves in order while I sang the song. Then I sang the song to check the order. Then we all sang together, then had one of the other kids subtract out a picture or two and sang it again, repeating the subtracting till we were singing without the pictures. I used the pictures for review later and subtracted 3-4 at a time. The first part of the 2nd verse lends itself to this picture thing also but you might have to use words on the second half and that is hard for the younger kids. By the time I got to the second verse, the stake Primary chorister told us that we were having a Primary choir in Stake conference and she wanted to sing this song in sign language. She got us the video of the ASL signs and I taught them the first verse in sign then taught the second verse just using the signs. I just sang this to myself using the signs and remember them quite well. (Idea by Rachel Weaver)

Sara writes, "I just posted simplified ASL for this song on youtube. The keyword here is "simplified!" If you are wanting to teach a conceptually accurate interpretation you should use what is on lds.org but if your purpose is just to teach some signs to your children for your program or to help them learn the words then hopefully you'll find this helpful."

This is one of my favorite songs and holidays are one of my favorite things about life. I am going to combine this with Valentines and talk about love and how valentines day is a day/month where we celebrate love. Heavenly Father has given us so many valentines and blessings to show us and to help us feel his love. The lyrics of this song are like little valentines from Heavenly Father.  My thoughts were to have a discussion about what the kids see and feel from Heavenly Father then have heart cut outs with the words and pictures for the song. I like to just draw my aids with crayons. Simple but I think having them internalize and notice Heavenly Fathers love in their everyday lives will be good.  (Idea shared by Kristin Hodson / Primary Music Yahoo Group)

    I love the visuals D'Net used in her flipchart for this song. Just a kind reminder, though, to please be careful to type the song exactly as it is in the Children's Songbook. I noticed two mistakes. (2nd verse: He gave me my eyes that I MIGHT see...her chart says could instead of might. Also 2nd verse: For all his creations of which I'M A PART...her chart says of which I am part.) it comes up in Adobe, and I don't know how to go in and edit it before printing, or how to change it to a word document. (If anyone knows, please enlighten me. Thx!) So I'll print it because I love the visuals, and then just fix those with good old white out and a marker.

    I don't know how old this is but you could always save the pictures(right click, save as) and create your own flipchart in word with the same pictures.

    If you're using D'Net's flipchart, just thought I'd let you know I found one more mistake in the words, again in the 2nd verse. It should be He gave me my LIFE, my mind, my HEART...but she put the word heart first and life last ("mind" is still in the middle). Perhaps she was very tired as she was working on this...in any case, I still think it is a gorgeous set of pictures to use for this song, and thank her for sharing it!
