Arghhhhh You Sure That First Answer’s Incorrect?

Thanks to Jen for sharing this pic of her 7-year-old son Ty’s social studies test.

First off, we can all agree the teacher using an X to mark that first definition incorrect is ironic, right?

We can also agree that answer would have never been marked wrong in Pirating 101. (And by the way, in Dora the Explorer 101, the only acceptable response would be, “Loud, incessantly-repetitive thing that annoys the frickin’ hell out of anyone older than five.”)

Ty, your thinking is the real treasure here.

Well played, matey. Well played.

A Baby Story: Grandma Gets Brutally Honest

When 7-year-old Nicolas was born, it was really awesome.

New world? Discovery? Peeing?

Really cool.

Your grandmother comparing your swaddled, tiny newborn self to E.T.?

Not quite as cool.

Thanks to Tina, the alien’s mom, for sharing with SKW.

Really cool.

Dear Santa: If You Could Bring an ATM That Doesn’t Charge a Usage Fee, That’d Be Awesome!

As Cousin Eddie would say, an ATM machine truly is the gift that keeps on giving the whole year, and we’re all wondering what exactly is included in a bag of pranks, right?

Thanks to Jessica for sharing her 7-year-old son’s Christmas list with Stuff Kids Write. May all her Christmas wishes come true.

Like figuring out a way to get that helicopter to fit under the tree.

Please share some funny stuff kids wrote with the readers of SKW!

Santa letters, Christmas lists, thank-yous, school work: all make terrific stocking stuffers in the form of an image submitted to either mcfadden.chase@gmail.com or leanneshirtliffe@gmail.com.

‘Tis the season of giving, people…

Enjoy the Milk and Arsenic-laced Cookies, Santa!

It’s very common for young children to confuse their “b”s and “d”s when writing.

Happens all the time.

Katina’s 6-year-old daughter had just such a mix-up when composing her letter to Santa this year.

Innocent mistake.

Still, might not be a bad idea for the Jolly Ol’ Elf to make sure he brings everything on her list.

After all, roofs can get awfully “slippery” on Christmas Eve.

It’d be terrible if there was an accident.

Watch your step, Mr. Claus…

Thanks to Katina for sharing this Santa letter with SKW’s readers!

Won’t you please share, as well?

Submit your snapped pic of a child’s writing to mcfadden.chase@gmail.com or leanneshirtliffe@gmail.com.

After all, ’tis the season of giving, and laughter is really easy to gift-wrap.

What Teenage Boys Ask Santa For

You’re never too old to write a Dear Santa letter, especially if you need working toilets in your house.

Sixteen-year-old Greyson seems to have it all going on, except for—as previously mentioned—properly working toilets.

Check out Grey’s list yourself.

Thanks to Grey and his awesome mom, Ginger. Please check out Ginger’s own writing at her blog and her Facebook Author Page.

In the comments, please tell us: What would have been on your “Dear Santa” list when you were sixteen?

If a child you know has written any funny Santa lists, please consider sharing them with the audience of StuffKidsWrite. Email us at mcfadden.chase@gmail.com and leanneshirtliffe@gmail.com.

Caramel Popcorn With What?

Autumn is the season of Thanksgiving.

Do you know what your children are thankful for?

You might be surprised.

Eight boxes. That’s a lot of . . . toppings.

No Wonder Those Bugs Look So Happy

Jan is a kindergarten teacher. She sees lots of great stuff kids write.

But Jan’s own 5-year-old son brought this one home from school. In her words:

“Glad to see phonics is working. I’m a proud mom.”

You should be, Jan.

In this case, Ii is for Impressive.

P.S. – I Definitely Know I Don’t Like Mom’s Meatloaf

Sometimes kids write in strange places.

Thanks to SKW reader Tina for submitting this awesome piece. She explains:

I found this note while moving. I’ve had that table for about 8 years and never knew it was there!

The unanswered question: Who wrote this?

Based on the sentiment expressed, we can at least narrow it down to only those kids who’ve ever had parents.

School agendas and fainting

Lief is a clever nine-year-old who (intentionally or not) seems to be poking fun at the idea of setting weekly goals.

This is what he wrote in his agenda as his goal for the week:

I am happy to report that Lief did, in fact, achieve his goal. He remains upright.
