CRAFTS:

alt A few years back the primary leaders in our ward made boutonnieres out of Tootsie Pop Suckers and attached them to a 3 x 5 card that said "You're a Great Pop" They took a sucker and cut half the stick off and then twisted a couple of florist leaves and fake babies breath and added the green florist tape and a corsage pin. It was fun to see the dads actually wearing them. I've also seen them with 2 and 3 suckers, but those were kind of heavy. These are pretty inexpensive in the bulk food bins. (Idea by Lisa)

alt Father's Day Ties: (Credit Unknown) A few years ago I did a fathers day sharing time each child brought in an old tie of their dads, redecorated it using glitter, pom-poms, feathers, paint etc. We wrapped the ties and sent them home to be opened on fathers day before church so that all the dads could wear them to church.

alt Last year for father's day we gave cans of "Dad's" Root beer with a note in the shape of a tie that said; "To the world's greatest  POP!" (Charla Buchanen)
alt My Kids Walk All Over Me!
alt One year we made "Almond Joy" bow ties for the fathers. We drew a cute oversized bow tie and wrote "All Men Are That They Might Have Joy" on it and copied it onto cardstock. We cut them out and finally taped a full-size Almond Joy bar on it. (Credit Unknown)
alt Paper Airplane with Gum
alt Print out dad's priesthood line of authority on vellum and put a picture of Christ behind it...then frame it. (Do you need a copy of his line of authority? The Church has started a new program where you can contact them for Line of Authority information, as long as the person is directly related to you. Call 801-240-3500 (or 800-453-3860 toll free), ask for Member Services, and choose option 6, then option 2. Be prepared to give as much information as possible. Full name, Date of Birth, Current Ward/Stake, Address and Zip Code, Who ordained him, and them (if known). Member services will put in a request for your information and mail you what they find. I personally did this and received a copy of my husbands a few weeks later.)
alt POP ROCKS (3 packages tied together with ribbon)
alt Treasure Candies - We put 3 of the candies in tissue (value colors no less) tied them off with curly ribbon and added the tag "A good father is a "Treasure" beyond measure. It was simple, the men enjoyed the treat and the baskets looked beautiful holding all the bright colored tissue wrapped candy. (Credit Unknown)
alt Quick and Easy Father's Day Gifts
alt You'll need: a kool-aid "squeeze-it" bottles (found in the juice section in grocery stores), netting/tule, curling ribbon, Hershey's Kisses, a little note with a hole punched in the corner with the following on it, "Here is a squeeze and a kiss from me to you! Happy Fathers Day!" (Credit Unknown)
 
FOOD IDEAS:

alt Father's Day Snack Mix - CUTE poem/idea from www.teachingheart.net
alt Our ward has done slices of pies for the past 10 years. Sisters bring a whole pie to Church on Sunday, and the RS presidency gets the Styrofoam take-home boxes and cuts each pie. Each dad picks one giant slice of pie to take home. Flavors are written on the lids of the box so they can choose between apple, peach, berry, etc. (whatever is brought that day). The dads LOVE it. (Idea by Lisa Willey)
alt Remote Control Cake
alt Shirt Cake For Dad 

 GAMES:

alt Father's Day Mazes
alt Play "pin the Tie on the Dad": (Idea by Liz Whitehorn) Have a child color a tie any way they want and you can make up question to put on the backs of thee ties. i.e. Who's Nephi's father? Who is the father of many nations? Who is Jesus' father? Why should we honor our father? Who is the father of our country? Who is the father of our ward/stake? What color are dad's eyes? Where did dad serve a mission? Let each child pick ties and if they answer the question correctly they get blindfolded and try to hang the tie on the dad poster (where you can easily find pictures of a father by going to www.lds.about.com for clipart.

SHARING TIME IDEAS:

alt Pin the tie on daddy by D'Net Layton - You could put different songs, stories or parts of your sharing time on the back of each of the ties.
alt When I was in primary for sharing time on Fathers day, I drew a father on a poster board (the head and chest) then made cute ties with all kinds of patterns and stuck them all over the primary room. Then I had one child pick a tie and they played "pin the tie on the dad". On the back of the ties were questions about dads. Who is the father of the ward? Nephi had a great father by the name of... who was the father who built a ship and put animals in it? I also did songs, "name that tune". You can adjust the questions to fit junior or senior you could put scriptures on the back of the ties and the children have to look them up. The children thought it was so cool. They loved cheering each other on. (by Rachel Alder / ga06132009)
alt 
As a brand new counselor in Primary, for Father's Day I needed to come up with something quick! I settled on Father's Day cards that said "I'm NUTS about You, Happy Father's Day" In the envelope we'll put a fun size bag of peanut M&Ms, and talk about how important out dads are to our family. (by LeAnna Nicholson / ga06122008)
alt Happy Father's Day
alt I am your.... by Debra Bartz
alt Last year for Father's Day we invited all the Dads to Senior Sharing Time. We took a group picture. After that we invited the Dad's to take a seat and we served them homemade Cinnamon Rolls and milk. This year we did the same thing for the Mother's. This year for Father's Day we will be inviting the Dad's again, but this time we will be sharing brownies and milk. (Idea by Merri Lea Hoff)

alt Sharing Time Idea by Sheryl
alt This June's Friend had a Father's Day footsteps poem. On Father's Day after reading the sweet poem to the primary children, give them a large (Daddy-sized) sand colored die cut footprint and have them write (or draw for the younger ones, the teacher could write the words underneath, if necessary to get the message across) on the footprint a good thing they see their Father do that they want to do to so they will be like him and follow in his footsteps. Later they can present it to their Dad or other VIP with a kiss. (Idea shared by Jennifer Barzee / ga06072007)
alt We are planning on decorating sugar cookie ties with frosting and candy then discussing the role of the father in the family, referencing the Proclamation of the Family. Then, we'll make a thank you card to our father's for all they do. (Idea shared by Janelle Hamm / ga06072008)
alt We wanted to do something to honor our bishop on Father's Day since he is the father of our ward. We are going to have him come into Primary hidden behind a rolling chalkboard. I spoke to his wife and found out lots of fun facts about him to give as clues for the children to try and guess who he is. When they find out how it is we were going to sing, "Our Bishop" to him and give him a treat. We are hoping this will let the bishop know how much we appreciate him and give the children an opportunity to get to know him better too! (Idea shared by Kristen / ga06092008)

    I need some help! I'd like to do a kind of "This is your life" for my hubby for dad's day. But I'm not sure how to put this together and pull it off. I'd like my kids to help, but they are younger; the oldest is 6 so it can't be anything too long. Any ideas that you have that you'd be willing to share, I'd appreciate! Thanks!

  • marterrie  - Father's Day
