Primary Music Idea - Dad's Gone Fishing
I've packed up my fishing gear and I'm ready to head to the Primary room to teach the song My Dad from the Children's Songbook on page 211. My fishing hat has all my fishing gear attached to it. I caught a paper fish just the other day so it will smell really good by the time I get to church and I've got more paper fish that my Primary Friends can help me to capture once we begin learning the song. In order to get the chance to come fishing with me they will have to be sitting reverently with their arms folded. One by one, they will have the chance to come and fish in my FISHING HOLE (a blue bucket I snuck from my son Braden's room). Each of the fish that they pull out will have a different section of the song. Once all of the fish are caught, we will take some time to figure out the proper order to the words of the song. I've placed magnet on the back of each piece so they can be placed up on the blackboard. I'm sure the Primary Children will be singing their little hearts out this year! As a special surprise for Dad or Grandpa, each child can take this Happy Father's Day Card and write a special message on the back. Attach the note and some Swedish Fish to a wooden dowel and away they go home for more FISHING ADVENTURES!
I hope you will all have a fantastic Father's Day this upcoming June!
