And you thought pencils were for writing --

He is not just sharpening the pencil.

 Have an alphabet.

 Please be seated.

 I think that split pencil is deliberate.

Here's to you!

Are we playing horseshoes?

 A hammer for tiny people.

Have a heart.

Small Children Writing About the Ocean.... All You Need To Know

The next time you take an oceanography course, you will be totally prepared.

Mermaids live in the ocean. I like mermaids. They are beautiful and I like their shiny tails, but how on earth do mermaids get pregnant? Like, really? (Helen, age 6)

I'm not going to write about the ocean. My baby brother is always crying, my Dad keeps yelling at my Mom, and my big sister has just got pregnant, so I can't think what to write. (Amy, age 6)

Some fish are dangerous. Jellyfish can sting. Electric eels can give you a shock. They have to live in caves under the sea where I think they have to plug themselves in to chargers. (Christopher, age 7)

On vacation my Mom went water skiing. She fell off when she was going very fast. She says she won't do it again because water fired right up her big fat ass. (Julie, age 7)

The ocean is made up of water and fish. Why the fish don't drown I don't know. (Bobby, age 6)

My dad was a sailor on the ocean. He knows all about the ocean. What he doesn't know is why he quit being a sailor and married my mom. (James, age 7)


  1. What a neat artform! I remember seeing text written on grains of rice when we visited the Ripley's museum in Niagara Falls in 1976. Very cool stuff.

  2. If I had a hammer, I'd hammer in the morning... But wow those are cool!

  3. Looks like an artform that requires super-human hand-eye coordination!
