(perfect for Father’s Day)
Lesson by Alex Bates, Digitized and adapted by Lara Goold
Materials needed:
To teach family members to show honor and appreciation to Daddy on Father’s Day and throughout theyear!
 By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsibleto provide the necessities of life and protection for their families.”
A Proclamation to the World
“Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land…”
Exodus 20:12Opening song(s) and prayer:
“A Happy Family,
Children’s Songbook, page 198
My Dad 
,” Children’s Songbook, page 211
 Attention Activity
: Introduce the activity by saying, “Tonight we are going to play a game. It’s called‘Find Out about Dad.’ I will ask a question; you guess the answer; then dad will tell us his answers.”The following questions might be asked (or make your own):1. What is Dad’s favorite color?2. What is Dad’s favorite sport?3. What is his favorite activity?4. What are his most outstanding qualities?5. What are his favorite foods?6. What is his favorite church song?7. What’s his middle name?
 Discuss and ask:
 Now that we’ve learned some fun things about Daddy, let’s talk a little more aboutDads in general. First of all, what are some other names for a Dad? (Father, Daddy, Dad, Papa, Pop,Dada, etc) Talk about how Daddies can look different and speak different languages, but all over theworld Daddies love and take care of their children
 Read Exodus 20:12:
“Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land…”
What is honor?
Try to draw from the children the idea that honoring one’s father includesliving in a way that will bring him honor. Because a patriarch leads and presides over all his descendants,we should honor our fathers, grandfathers, and all of our ancestors. As we honor our fathers, we honor our Heavenly Father also.
“We have our Daddy right here who is our earthly father, can you think of any other kinds of fathersthat we have?” Let’s talk about specific ways that we can show honor to each of them.
 Earthly father:
[show picture] Our earthly father is the father of our body. We can also have a stepfather or grandfather. Few things please a father more than having a son or daughter who is unselfish, helpful, pleasant, and kind and loving to everyone. The best way to honor daddy is to learn to work hard, studyhard, and to live the commandments. We can also honor our fathers by remembering that we have takenthe name of our family and that our family has a heritage. We honor Dad by striving to follow his goodexample and those of our family that have lived before us.
  Heavenly Father 
: [show picture] Our Heavenly Father is the father of each our spirit bodies. We need tolearn to obey Heavenly Father’s commandments by listening to the counsel of our parents and theinstructions from our teachers. We should pray to Heavenly Father often. He is real and he loves each of us. We can also show honor to our Heavenly Father by taking Christ’s name upon us and always strivingto live his example
Father of our Ward (Bishop):
[show picture] The Bishop is the father of our ward. He is responsible for the welfare of all the members of his ward. Another big responsibility the bishop has is the care andupkeep of the meetinghouse. We can show honor to our bishop by greeting him cheerfully, speakingkindly of him, by helping keep the church clean, and by trying to help others around us. Fulfilling our callings and remembering him in our prayers are other ways for us to show him honor.
Father of our Country:
[show picture] Countries, too, have wise and brave leaders who are looked uponas fathers by those who live there. George Washington is known as the “Father of His Country” becauseof his valiant leadership and deep devotion to the welfare of his countrymen in North America whowanted to live as a free people. To show honor to the father of our country we can be loyal, patriotic, andlaw-abiding citizens. We should also pray for our leaders.
 Now that we’ve learned about honoring all these different fathers in our lives, let’s talk moreabout the Daddy right here in our house! First, let’s give him a big giant hug and sing a song for him!
 Daddy’s Homecoming 
,” (page 210) and make sure to give him lots of real kisses at the end.
 Our Daddy Puzzle:
“Now let’s put together this puzzle as we talk about all the wonderful things our daddy does for our family.” As you put the specific pieces of the puzzle together discuss what that part of Daddy does to help our family (if desired, write down the things on the different puzzle pieces). Here aresome ideas
: Head— 
kisses, read us stories, teaching us about the gospel, smiles, tell us jokes, super smart
  Arms & Hands— 
hugs, helping, mowing the lawn, tickling
  Legs & Feet— 
taking us places, stomping on bugs, going to work 
loving us, testimony of the gospel, praying for us
 “We Love Dad” Charades— 
Put dad in a chair in the middle of the room and have each member of thefamily take turns telling Dad something that they love about him. After everyone has had a chance to praise Dad, have each family member take a card and act out something that Dad does
 —Ways that you can show love for daddy for Father’s Day and every day. Make sure you getideas from Daddy too!
 Bear your testimony
about the importance of fathers and how grateful you are to have a faithful father inyour home.
Closing song:
“For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow”
 Closing Prayer
Daddy’s favorite treat or see below for the recipe of our Daddy’s favorite treat
: Based on the ages and attention spans of your children, choose one or more of the following enrichmentactivities to enhance the message of the lesson. Enrichment activities do not necessarily need to becompleted on the same night as the lesson. We often use them as reinforcement/reminders during theweek.
Candy Bar Love Note
: (This is a fun family tradition of ours.)
Using a piece of poster board or several pieces of paper taped together, make Daddy a love note by taping candy bars in place of some of thewords. Clear packing tape right over the top of the candy bar works the best at affixing the candy firmly.(Here’s our note from last year. Don’t laugh too hard, I let my kids write it themselves)
 Dear BABY RUTH,You’re the awesomest dad in the wholeMILKY WAYand areMOUNDSof fun. We’re glad you don’t have BUTTERFINGERSbecause that would really give us theSNICKERS. If you run a lot you will take aFAST BREAK . While youCRUNCHon this candy, we will beROLOpolos sitting around doingZERO, zilch, nothing! Love,Your 5KISSABLEkidsPS We sure hope you’ll share with us this bigSKOR of candy.
Coupon Books for Service
On pages 12-14 below use the template to make your daddy a special coupon book for Father’s Day.
 Letters to Grandpa
Sit down and write real deal letters to grandpa (or draw pictures) and mail them tohim.
 Righteous Fathers from the Scriptures
: Pick a couple of examples of righteous fathers from thescriptures and share with your family the righteous example that each set. You can read from thescriptures, use the summaries from the Gospel Art Picture Kit, or just briefly summarize. Some examplesare, Alma the older, King Benjamin, Adam, Lehi, etc.
