When kids are little, the gift choosing, purchasing, and even giving on special occasions like Father’s Day typically falls on Mom. Of course, you want to involve the kids in recognizing Dad on his special day, but you can’t leave it all up to them.

But finding the perfect Father’s Day gift from kids doesn’t have to be complicated. By adding a loving message or incorporating a photo of the kids, or, even better, a photo of Dad with his kids, you can easily create memorable gifts for Dad that he’ll love and cherish for years to come.

Here are eight Father’s Day gifts from kids that are sure to bring Dad to happy tears.
