Sharing Time Instruction:
Play a guessing game with the primary children. Have Four silhouettes on the board. With clues on the back. Explain that you are going to give them clues about Fathers. And they need to guess who the Father is. (use clues up above). Ideas of fathers came from "Every Day a Father’s Day", June 1981 Friend Magazine.
- Heavenly Father: This Father is the father of your spirit. Everything you have is from him. He loves you so much and wants you to speak to him in each day in prayer.
- Earthly Father: This Father is the your father here on Earth. He presides over your home, loves you and helps in teaching you and helping you grow.
- Father of the Ward (Bishop)- This Father has responsibility for the welfare of the ward. He loves each member of the ward, helps in supporting them in their callings and families.
- Father of your Country- This Father has the responsibility for the welfare of the country. They are to look out for the best interest of every person in the land.
Discuss with the children how we can show love and appreciation to each "Fathers" discussed all year long.
Give the children the DAD Questionnaire (see above) and have them fill out the things about their dad. Encourage the children to show appreciation to their "Fathers"
