Father's Day/Pin the Tie on the Dad/Who is the Daddy - 6/16

For Father's Day we will be playing a combination of 'Pin the Tie on the Dad' and 'Who is the Daddy'.

Each tie (they will be around the room on the walls) will have questions and a song on the back (see below)Choose 1 Primary child to pick a tie and read the question on the back.  In Jr. Primary, the whole Primary will help answer the question, especially since teacher help will likely be needed.  In Sr. Primary, BEFORE reading the question, the child who picked the tie can either compete themselves or choose a classmate from their side of the room while I pick another contestant from the opposite side of the room to sit at a small table in front with a couple of handbells.  Whoever rings the handbell first - and gets the question right - gets a small treat (a Hershey's kiss, etc).  If answers are slow in coming they can pick on kids from their side of the room to come whisper the answer to them. I know competitions don't work for some primaries, but ours (at least Sr.) adore it! If Jr. Primary is having a rough time, I may skip the questions altogether.

Once the question is answered, a new child will be chosen to be blindfolded (with a tie, of course) and will try to pin the tie on this laminated guy:

Anyone happen to have the original source for this artwork?  I saved them ages ago and said they were from 'Katie', but I can't find the source now and would love to reference it since it's going to save me a lot of amateur drawing.
 
I found these QUESTIONS over at the Crazy Chorister:

1. What Father Appeared to Joseph Smith in the Scared Grove? (Heavenly Father)
2. Who is Alma the Younger's Father? (Alma)
3. Who is the Father of our Ward? (Bishop)
4. Who is Ammon's (the one who was a great missionary and cut off the arms) father? (Mosiah)
5. Who is Nephi's Father? (Lehi)
6. Who is the Father of the Joseph sold into Egypt? (Jacob)
7. How many Fathers do we all have? (Earthly father, Heavenly father, etc).
8. Whose words made Enos want to repent? (His father Jacob's)
9. Who is the partiarch of the home? (Father)
10. Who loves you more than anything else in the world? (Mother is also an acceptable answer here)

The SONGS I may use are:
 
I Know My Father Lives 5 (we have a Heavenly Father who loves us)
Families Can Be Together Forever 188
Daddy's Homecoming 210
Once there was a Snowman 249 (many dads love to help build snowmen)
For Health and Strength 21 - sing in a round if you like
(Dads, in lots of different ways, help take care of us)
I'll Walk With You 140 (Dads love us no matter what)
We'll Bring the World His Truth 172 (We have goodly parents)
Love is Spoken Here 190

  1. Hey Adrienne, my name is Heather and I love your idea for Father's Day, I was wondering if you could send me a pdf of the cartoon drawings. Just copy and paste makes it very grainy.

  5. I just wanted to thank you for posting your great ideas. I love teaching primary music, but I'm not so good at coming up with my own fun ideas. I love to use everyone else's great ideas though. So thanks for sharing! It helps make my music time so effective!

  7. So when do they pin the tie on the dad? He'll have all the ties on him by the end right? do you blind fold them?

    1. My plan was to have one child PICK the tie/read the question, and after the question is answers have ANOTHER child, blindfolded, pin the tie. A tie for a blindfold could be funny. :)

  9. Just jumped on to search for something for father's day and ran across this page. That is my clipart. I don't remember where I got the dad pic from but I drew and colored the ties and I remember adding the shirt to the dad (it was just a head before). Too funny! I'm glad others were able to use it.
