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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
If you do, we’ll let you go down that slide.
Or give you a ticket to Sex Gun City.
Whichever you prefer.
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.
Email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Who knows? Maybe you’ll get a popcorn party.
Seven-year-old Sage wrote a book.
We’ll let her tell you all about it:
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Thanks!
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
After all, ’tis the season of giving, and laughter is really easy to gift-wrap.
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.
If you see an impressive example of stuff a kid wrote, snap a pic with your smartphone and share it with the followers of SKW! Please email to either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Thanks, and happy Isexing to all!
