Father’s Day is a great time to say “thanks” to Daddy. Children love to sing to “dad”. I’m sharing some Father’s day songs and activities you can use with your children.




“My Daddy” is an easy to learn cute song your students and children can sing to daddy. Use the amazing sing a long video and music tracks to teach students the song.

It’s an original Song or Poem by Sandra Hendrickson. Read the lyrics, sing the song and make the card for an engaging Preschool-2nd Grade Literacy Activity.


My Daddy is an awesome man.

He loves me YES it’s true.

I hug him every day and say; “Daddy I love you”!

Children love to make choices. That’s why I created 3 versions of “daddy” in the coloring and card making activities.

Some students may not have a father figure in the home, but a class discussion about other “father” figures can help these children understand and feel okay about Father’s Day.

Some other “father” figures can be represented through a religious organization, a grandfather, uncle, close adult male friend or even teacher. It’s a day to say thanks to the “men” in a child’s life.
