Sharing Time Idea from the 2012 Primary Outline
ENCOURAGE UNDERSTANDING (reading scriptures and playing a game): Read together 1 Corinthians 3:16-17.  Invite the children to share what this scripture means to them. Explain that Heavenly Father wants us to take care of our bodies.  Place pictures of various foods, drinks, and other items that are either good or bad for our body (such as fruits, vegetables, bread, alcohol, and tobacco) in a container.  Make a copy of page 43 in the Nursery manual, and cut it into puzzle pieces.  Have the children take turns taking pictures from the container.  If the item in the picture is good for us, have the child place a puzzle piece on the board.  If the item is bad, remove a puzzle piece.  Continue playing until the puzzle is complete (you will need to have more good things in the container than bad things).  Ask an adult or child to share some of the blessings that he or she has received by obeying the Word of Wisdom (see Doctrine and Covenants 89:18-21).

Sharing Time Idea from Little LDS Ideas
I have a few ideas that I shared last year that will go right along with this week’s theme that I thought I would share. But then I remembered it’s Father’s Day next Sunday, so I thought I would take a look over at Sugardoodle to see if anyone had an idea for this week with a little Father’s Day twist, and I found one that I thought was really cute. Here it is:

JaneMI shared this idea:
“I asked each of the kids Dads what their favorite food/snack is. I will have the children pull pictures out of a box of the things their Dads like to eat as well as some things that are not good for our bodies and I will hang up a big “Dad” cut out and a trash can and they will decide if it’s something Dads should eat or go in the trash. We will also learn who’s dad like what.”

Love it! When I read that I thought it was perfect for this week. You could even pick a few of the Dad’s favorite treats and make little goodie bags. Then after Sharing Time have the children take the goodie bags to all the men in the ward.

For the Dad cut-out you could draw it on a poster-board and then cut out the mouth. Have a bag or box attached to the back and have the children ‘feed’ the Dad the healthy food. And then of course throw away the ‘bad’ food/drink/etc.
Here are some cute ideas you could use as treats for those special Dads:
 I wish I could say I came up with these adorable little treats, but sadly I didn’t. But seriously, aren’t these the cutest!?! And they’re so easy to make!

And then we have the cute little goodie bags. Who would have thought by adding a cute little tie to a bag could make white lunch bags so cute. 
Just fill up these bags with some favorite treats and you’re good to go.
And one more Father’s Day Treat Bag:

Jen over at Twiddler House created these cute bags. She added a collar and  then printed part of the song, “Daddy’s Homecoming” onto the tie.
Then she filled up each bag with Hershey Kisses.
LOVE it!
 And she even shared a free printable of the ties, so head on over and take a look!
And I have to include my little Tie Treats:

And if you’re searching for a poem to go along with a goodie box, then
I hope all of you have a wonderful week & a great Sharing Time!

    Without realizing what the theme was, our primary decided to do a “Dad’s favorite recipes book”. We asked most of the children in our primary, there were a few we couldn’t reach, what their dad’s favorite recipe was. This is a great way to incorporate the recipes that we have!

    I Love these ideas! i tried to go to the link you shared for Twiddler House, but the site doesn’t let anyone but invited guests to see the blog. Do you think they would let you post the tie pattern on your site? Thanks for sharing all these! They are wonderful!
