Kid Party Candidate for President of the United States




RIP Mr. Bubls

Ethan’s family had a funeral when his sister’s fish died. Ethan wrote a eulogy of sorts to commemorate the tragedy.

Death has never been described so succinctly.

Admittedly, not so great for Mr. Bubls (RIP), but good for us, even though we do fell bad.

Let it Linger (And Leave a Note)

Chrissy found this laying on her husband’s pillow:



When documenting incidents of flatulence in relation to bedding, accurate timestamping is always important.

Because Sharks, That’s Why.

William is reading The Battle of Riptide, the second book in the Shark Wars series.

His teacher requires him to complete a reading log question after he finishes his daily home reading.

Yesterday’s question asked this:

Kids Notes

Because a shark on land is a dead shark. That’s why.

Nailed it.

Dads and Grandpas: Bring on the Nair!



It’s probably safe to assume that Uncle Jeff has a hairy chest and arms, as well.


Thanks to Jessica for sharing her 7-year-old’s astute, concise observations detailing the only real meaningful difference between males and females.

Speaking of being observant, this is a great time of year to discover some hidden gems in your children’s backpacks as you decontaminate and disinfect clean them out. Please consider submitting these treasures to Stuff Kids Write! (No, we’re not referring to the rock-hard, half-eaten cheese sticks; we mean the humorous school assignments.)

And have a terrific Father’s Day, all you hairy beasts out there! Just don’t go shedding all over everybody!

Armpit Farts: The Only Way to End Your Day

Michael over at Dadicus Grinch shared this daily “To Do” list that his 7-year-old son Hayden brought home from school one day.

Michael asked if the teacher had assigned Hayden and his classmates the job of making a list: “No, a few of us just wanted to make them.”

You’ll find that Hayden’s list is incredibly thorough (and hilarious).

A couple of annotations, courtesy of Michael:

4. “Special” is the term for a rotating class: Art, Gym, Music…

14. “Pink” is what we call their fluoride rinse. So glad that I put the fear of the dentist in them — can you tell?

17. “Jump and do armpit farts” The boy is lucky he hasn’t cracked any ribs he’s been doing so many damn armpit farts.

In honor of 7-year-olds everywhere, we at Stuff Kids Write invite to join us in completing Hayden’s list today.

Just don’t crack any ribs.

Cranny Envy


It’s not the size of the cranny, but how you use it, amirite?

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Happy Beerthday, Papa!

Don’s 5-year-old daughter made this birthday card for her papa.

It really captures everything a papa could hope for on his birthday.

Family? Check.

Bar? Check.

Laughter? Check.

Hamburger? Check.

Attentive wait staff? Check.

Music? Check.

Good beer? Check.

Happy birthday, indeed.


On behalf of SKW’s followers, a toast to Don, his daughter, and Papa! With good beer, of course. (Are there bad beers?)

Thanks for sharing, Don!

This Jayden Kid is the Justin Bieber of Second Graders


Jessica submitted this piece from one of her students. In her words:

“I give my students a survey to complete at the end of the year. I use the information when I write my final report cards. This was from one of my little boys (2nd grade). Jayden was another second grade boy, and for a 7-year-old, he did have a lot of girlfriends!”

Moral of the story?

Being good at math doesn’t necessarily add up to more love from the ladies.

Mom, You’re Cooler than Squashed Possum!


Kristen’s 9-year-old composed this ode to her awesomeness for Mother’s Day.

We can only imagine how teary-eyed Kristen was after reading it.

Teary-eyed from laughter, possibly, but teary-eyed nonetheless.


Thanks to Kristen for putting her modesty aside and sharing with the readers of SKW how she puts roadkill to shame. Check out her blog here. (SPOILER ALERT: No roadkill.)

You should share some funny kids’ writing with us, too! End-of-school time is a great opportunity to discover a treasure in a child’s backpack. (SPOILER ALERT: There may be roadkill.)

Email an image of the piece to either or Or to both if you’re feeling ambitious.
