That’s a Hell of a City!

erica.sexguncity

Six-year-old Connor wrote about his family’s trip to Six Gun City in his “What I Did This Summer” journal.

Judging by that waterslide, it looks like a really fun place.

Who knows? Sex Gun City might be fun, too.

No word on what the waterslides are like there.

Thanks to Erica, Connor’s mom, for sharing his summer memory. Check out her blog here.

Please share your image of a funny piece of children’s writing by submitting to mcfadden.chase@gmail.com or leanneshirtliffe@gmail.com.

If you do, we’ll let you go down that slide.

Or give you a ticket to Sex Gun City.

Whichever you prefer.

Gas Games Are Fun

alexis.6yo.pe.gas

Six-year-old Alexis likes PE because her teacher makes up fun games.

Not that gas in PE isn’t fun.

Remember the cool little scooters?

Any game involving those is a perfect fit for flatulence. After all, breaking a bit of wind might provide a slight boost in propulsion, and it makes a pretty terrific sound effect. (Just don’t leave any skidmarks.)

And if you didn’t want to get caught underneath the parachute before, just wait until someone pulls the ripcord on one under there!

Do you think they put that hole in the middle of the fabric for ventilation?

Thanks to Shelley for sharing her daughter’s note with Stuff Kids Write. It’s no stinker, that’s for sure.

Please send us funny samples of kids’ writing you catch wind of.

A Penise Saved Is a Penise Earned

A penise for your thoughts:

Do you think the teacher put them in a jar?

*********

Thanks to Jeremy for sharing his 7-year-old’s plea for PENNIES with Stuff Kids Write!

You should share, too. Submit an image of a child’s funny writing to either mcfadden.chase@gmail.com or leanneshirtliffe@gmail.com.

Who knows? Maybe you’ll get a popcorn party.

Take My Word For It: This Book Is Asam!

Seven-year-old Sage wrote a book.

We’ll let her tell you all about it:

sage.story

A long, fun, weird story about a girl? What’s not to love about that!

Pretty savvy strategy by Sage giving us the CliffNotes version of her novel: just enough of a  tease to get us to buy the to-be-published bestseller or go watch the film adaptation, but not so much as to spoil it for us.

Asam.

Thanks to Sage’s mother, Toni, for sharing with Stuff Kids Write. If you have humorous kids’ writing you’re willing to share with our readers, please send it either mcfadden.chase@gmail.com or leanneshirtliffe@gmail.com. Thanks!

A Baby Story: Grandma Gets Brutally Honest

birth.story

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.

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.

Thank Goodness She Doesn’t Have Mrs. Fluck for First Grade

Shelly’s daughter loves her first grade teacher, so she drew a picture and shared it with her.

Her teacher shared the picture with Shelly.

Shelly shared it with Stuff Kids Write.

Thanks, Shelly.

Thanks, Shelly’s daughter.

Thanks, Shelly’s daughter’s teacher, Mrs. Schmidt.

Sharing truly is the sh*t.
