This post will help you find all of my My Heavenly Father Loves Me teaching ideas around this blog. Plus, I’m also sharing additional favorite lesson plans from other Primary music leaders at the end of this post!

1. My Heavenly Father Loves Me – Pick a Picture Phrase

This idea may be best for Junior Primary, but can also be used in Senior. You’ll make a word symbol puzzle for My Heavenly Father Loves Me!

Take just a few pictures / symbols per phrase of the song and let the kids help you unscramble their way through the song. They’ll love this crack the code game that’s at their level!

2. My Heavenly Father Loves Me – Not That Word

A great alternative for the Pick a Picture Phrase game, try this Not That Word game in Senior Primary. The Senior primary loves the challenge, so we’ll be playing My Heavenly Father Loves Me Not That Word.

In this game, they’ll cross out words that don’t belong until there are only the “right” words left.
