Clinch your eyes together really hard and it makes a little water appear under your eyes. You could also cover your eyes and make a crying sound. Take some tap water and wipe it under your eyes to make it appear as a tear. Hope this helps

My friend out Vapor Rub around her eyes and it made her eyes water. Sometimes when I laugh really hard, I can start crying the next minute. I don't know why. I also start to make my breathing heavy and clench up my throat a little, and then act sad, it'll work. Idk why.
