Use this Father’s Day Activity to honor the dads of little ones.
Our children created a unique card for Father’s Day. Using their thumbprints, the children created pictures of sheep. They then drew a shepherd and glued this poem (my original writing) to their picture:
Children are just little lambs Needing love and care.
We have a Heavenly Shepherd Who is with us everywhere.
But even on this Earth, God gave us shepherds, too.
He knew just what I needed. I’m so glad He gave me you!
Inside their cards, children glued the preprinted words to Psalm 78:5-7: “The Lord made an agreement with Jacob and gave the teachings to Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach to their children. Then their children would know them, even their children not yet born. And they would tell their children. So they would all trust God and would not forget what he had done but would obey his commands.”
For those children in our congregation who don’t have dads living with them, we encouraged them to give their card to someone who had been like a shepherd or father to them.
