Dads work hard to take care of their families. They do lots of things to show them their love. Kids love telling their dads how much they love them, too, but sometimes they struggle for a great gift idea.

Here are just some of the thoughtful things that children can do for their dad that will really make him smile!
Wash The Car – having a bright shiny car makes dads smile big-time. If your children are young and not acquainted with the ins and outs of car washing, some supervision from you, mom, is in order. Don’t forget to have them vacuum the car interior!
Weed The Garden – does daddy like to work in the garden? Weeding is the tedious part of gardening. Wouldn’t he love having that garden weed-free? Oh, yes he would! Again, younger children may not know the difference between a weed and a beloved plant so they will need you to show them how.
Cut The Lawn – older children can surprise dad by mowing the lawn for him. Remind them to refill the lawn mower with gas when they are done so that the next time, when it is dad’s turn, it will be all ready for him.
Clean The Garage – got a team of kids in your family? What a gift for their father to find the garage clean and tidy. Get your kid-crew on the job. Some dads will really enjoy cleaning right along with their kids which is great if that makes him happy. Pick whatever way works best.
Walk The Dog – is dad the dog walker in your household? He might love a day off. If so, let the children walk the dog for him.
Take Dad To The Big Game – if dad is a sports enthusiast, take him to a sporting event. Does he enjoy watching baseball, golf or soccer? Whatever he likes the best, he will love doing it with all of you!
Make a Daddy Memory Book – make a scrap book of family memories for the man of the house. Pictures of fishing trips, family events and his special accomplishments – things that he loves to remember – should be in it.
Give Him a “Do Nothing Day!” – yes, daddy gets the whole day off. Families with teenagers can do this best. Whatever he normally would do, you all do it for him including running errands, filling the car up with gas, and completing his honey-do list.
What ideas have your kids come up with to show their dad how much he is loved?
