Fathers Day Unit Study

Call it what you want: Dad’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandpa’s Day, it’s a great day to celebrate the fathers in our life.

Our family is busy this week taking a special look at WHO (our earthly father, and our heavenly father)and WHAT (a mentor, protector, guide, friend, provider, comforter, creator, etc.) a father is. 
To get ready for this, I put together a Fathers Day Unit Study. 

I love to share these resources with everyone, so here is a FREE Fathers Day Unit Study you can do with your kids too.

Fathers Day Unit Study, Lesson Plans, Lapbook, and Notebook Pages, Worksheet Printables, Crafts,  Games, and so much more.

Bible Gateway:
“As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;” Psalm 103:13 NIV

Deuteronomy 32:6
Is this the way you repay the LORD, you foolish and unwise people? Is he not your Father, your Creator, who made you and formed you?

Matthew 6:14
For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

Matthew 6:26
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Matthew 18:19
“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.”

John 4:23
Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

2 Corinthians 6:18
And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”

Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.”

Ephesians 6:2

Ephesians 6:4
Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.

Other Ideas

Drama and Role Play:
Play Dress Up.  Have the children dress up in some of Dad’s clothing and role play.  They can act like daddy at home or at work.  They could pretend they are fixing something on the house or car that needs worked on too.  Lots of fun ways to role play with this.

Play Games in the yard or at a park:  frisbee, catch, ball toss, basket ball, miniature golf, frisbee golf, explore a creek or shallow river together, go fishing, go swimming, have a picnic, play on a playground, etc.

Play Games in the house:  hunt for love notes, board games, miniature golf, video game, table tennis, pool, fooze ball, air hockey, etc.

Do a craft together with dad: build a model (car, boat, plane, etc.), build a wood working project, paint something, fix something, etc.  Does dad like computers, wood working, mechanics, cooking, puzzles, etc.?  What ever his interests are, find a craft you can both do together.

Make a meal together:  favorite bbq, pancakes, steak, make whatever dad likes, but make it together.

Have a good time spending quality time with your DAD this Father’s Day! 

And if your dad is away on a trip, seperated from the family, or perhaps has passed away, still honor him with some quiet reflection on what he has meant in your life.  You can still write him a letter, or a poem or anything on your heart to honor him in your own way.

If your dad has done you wrong in some way, please forgive him and move forward with your life.  Unforgiveness will hold you in bondage, and prevent you from ever living to your potential.  Pick out a couple activities above, such as a letter to dad, or a writing prompt, or reviewing the scriptures and ask God to help you forgive your father for whatever it was he did wrong.

A special message to our dad today:


We love you!!!
