However, you can help the children appreciate righteous men in their lives.

Extension Activities:

  • Review a few different Father’s Day songs by organizing the ties by color or pattern. Have each color represent a different song. Whenever a child comes up and chooses the tie, sing the song that corresponds with that color of tie!
  • Come up with some different ways to sing the song! Have each pattern of tie corresponds with a different way to sing. For example, sway back and forth if the tie has stripes! Jump up and down while singing if the tie has polka dots. If the tie is plain, have the kids pretend to be putting on a tie while they sing.
