40+ Father’s Day Primary Songs

We’re on to the next holiday, and here I’ve compiled a big huge list of 40 Father’s Day Primary songs you can teach in Singing Time!

Father’s day is such a fun occasion to spoil the men in the ward. It’s not as sensitive of a holiday as Mother’s Day, though of course there are still some in the ward who will have a harder time with the holiday than other.

I love how many of these Primary Songs for Father’s Day are light hearted, fun, and even silly that are perfect for so many dads that have that fun playful bond with kids.

Father’s day is always celebrated on the 3rd Sunday in June. In 2022, Father’s Day will be on June 19th. In 2023 Father’s Day falls on June 18th.

With those dates in mind, you’ll want to start practicing for a Father’s day song in early-May (or right after you finish your Mother’s Day Primary songs!)

10 Favorite Father’s Day Primary Songs

For those looking for an easier way to pick your Father’s Day song this year, I thought I’d share my favorite 10 Primary Songs for Father’s Day (in order). Of course, these are my personal pick and your list and order will likely be different than mine.

I usually go really low key and don’t pick a super difficult song for Father’s day, so my list does somewhat reflect that. If you ask me, you can’t go wrong with the classic Daddy’s Homecoming! You also might think it’s strange to see Grandmother on the list but we’ve done this one for Father’s day (with a word substitution) and I loved it!!
