The Honored Title Father a Father’s Day Poem

The honored title, Father, means much to me

As I ponder my eternal family.

Rightly and first is God, in Heaven above.

I am His child, born of Him, in Spirit and love.

Next, is the Father and creator of Earth.

Who, through the Atonement, taught us our worth.

The next might surprise you. It is Adam.

For, his life spent fallen, brought about all man.

Still there are more before I get to my own.

There is Noah, whose arc saved all life, alone.

Then, there is Abraham and the covenant of his seed.

His children outnumber the sands of the sea.

I can’t forget the one who adopted the Lord of us all.

For, upon his shoulders was the greatest call!

Speaking of callings, there is one in this ward

Who helps me stay clean, as in life I move forward

Finally, there is you, the Father of me.

Without whom I would not ever be.

Thank you for preparing me for a good life

As to my father-in-law, I treasure the words: man and wife

Thank you dear fathers, you’ve led me and taught.

More than words can say, I love you A LOT!

For a father is the one whom without we would be naught.

A father is to be treasured and his wisdom sought.

Now, in your own heart, is there anyone that I forgot?

Father’s Day Shirt Card Craft

I got a copy of this shirt card and decided to share it. It takes a good bit of folding to make. If you have a small Primary, you can probably help the older kids do it; otherwise, you’ll be folding dozens of these bad boys up yourself (not to mention you’ll be ensuring you receive that pool house for your Celestial Mansion for your extreme Primary commitment).

You can find out how to make these cards at Martha Stewart .com.

This one is cute, but I think my father’s day tie card is easier, and kids of any age can do it themselves easily during Primary.

Father’s Day Yummy Checkers

This is a father’s day gift that provides me-and-you time, along with a yummy treat. The PDF version has space at the bottom for a signature, short note, or handrawn picture — maybe of the father and child playing checkers :).

Print this checkerboard out and use 2 varieties of your favorite snack as game pieces!!! Try M&Ms, Hershey’s Kisses or Hugs or Caramel Kisses, Lifesavers, Fruity peppermints, Twizzlers Cherry or Chocolate Nibs, wrapped or unwrapped Peanut Butter cups, peanuts and cashews, green or red grapes, Apple Jacks cereal — the possiblities are endless!

Also available in a plain version (without the “Happy Father’s Day!”). Click the games link below.

From an idea I found at theHershey’s Kiss Craft website

Top Pop

I used this as a favor for a Daddy-Daughter activity, but it would make a great Father’s day Primary project, too.

1) Print the images on heavy paper.
2) Cut each circle out.
3) Using a hole punch or pencil, make two holes, one in the top and bottom of each circle. (I found it worked best to push the hole punch in as far as it would go to make the holes)
4) Weave the stick of a sucker through the holes so that the sweet sucker end is at the top, and the stick shows from the bottom.

I used Blow Pops and Jolly Rancher pops, and this worked fine for both kinds of suckers. We pinned these to the daddies to look kind of like a buttoniere (how do you spell that?).

4 images per sheet.

This is available as a black and white coloring sheet, or as a full color printable. Click on “top pop” below to see all the versions of this file.

Poem:
Fathers are Wonderful People

Fathers are wonderful people
Too little understood,
And we do not sing their praises
As often as we should…
But Fathers are just wonderful
In a million different ways,
And they merit loving compliments
And accolade of praise,
For the only reason Dad aspires
To fortune and success
Is to make the family proud of him
And to bring them happiness…
And like our Heavenly Father,
He’s a guardian and a guide,
Someone that we can count on
To be always on our side.

Father’s Day / Missionary Tie Card

This is a template for the Father’s Day Tie Card, sometimes called the Shirt and Tie Card.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Print the template — any weight or color of paper is fine. The borders will not be visible if you print from the PDF (recommended). If you are printing the PDF version and the borders show, go to the Print Dialog (the window that comes up when you choose File->Print) and change the “Page Scaling” option to “None”. If printing the JPEG or GIF, you may have to trim along the dotted borders. Use your library’s paper cutter if you have many sheets to cut.

2) Fold the paper along the long black line in the center of the template (in half the short way).

3) Cut along the dotted lines.

4) Fold the collar along the lines marked fold.

5) Tape or glue the collar down.

6) Decorate as desired.

*** Note: to open this card without damaging the collar, fold along the imaginary collar line on the back of the card. This also makes the card so it will stand up. ***
