we are getting ready for the Daddy Daughter (pinewood) Derby in two weeks, but you could do this activity for Father's Day in June and make cards and race cars for the Dad's that say "You're a Winner!" This could fulfill the Faith in God requirement to write a letter of appreciation to someone.
For the activity, we had a "racing" theme. I talked to the girls about the Kentucky Derby, "the most exciting two minutes in all of sports" and about what a thoroughbread is. Then I shared Marvin J Ashton's story "He's a thoroughbred" in my own words. There is a horse that is trained to go to his master when he hears a bell no matter what the circumstances. We talked about "the Master" being the Lord. I had them think up things that might be "bells" in our lives and things that might tempt us to ignore the bell. In the the story the horses are tested with a three day fast to see if they will choose water or their master. If they choose their master they are a "thoroughbred" otherwise they are a cull. The girls wanted to know how many horses passed the water test. We talked about how the arabian horses were famous for being obedient and how the girls in our class can become well known for the same trait.
For the activity, the girls colored invitations for their Dad's to the Daddy Daughter Date and then they each made three teddy graham race cars. I used royal icing with a couple tablespoons of cocoa powder for the glue. You could use something else, but royal icing (eggwhite, cream of tarter, powder sugar) hardens up QUICK so it was easier for the girls to finish their cars and take them home without the wheels falling off.
