The Sea – Out of the Mouths’ of Babes

A number of Primary Schools were doing a project on “The Sea.”

The Kids (all aged between 5 and 8 years) were asked to write or draw pictures about their experiences. Teachers got together to compare the results and put together some of the comments that were funny and some that were sad.

Here are some of them:

Kelly age 6
This is a picture of an octopus. It has eight testicles.

David age 7
Whales are animals, not fish. If they don’t get air they can drown, like my brother did last summer. (His brother is okay by the way!)

James age 6

Oysters’ balls are called pearls.

Wayne age 7
If you are surrounded by sea you are an Island. If you don’t have sea all around you, you are incontinent.

Kylie age 6
I think sharks are ugly and mean, and have big teeth, just like Emily Richardson. She’s not my friend no more.

Billy age 6
A dolphin breaths through a butthole on the top of it’s head.

Millie age 6
My uncle goes out in his boat with pots, and comes back with crabs.

William age 7
When ships had sails, they used to use the trade winds to cross the ocean. Sometimes, when the wind didn’t blow, the sailors would whistle to make the wind come. My brother said they would be better off eating beans.

Helen age 7
I like mermaids. They are beautiful, and I like their shiny tails. How do mermaids get pregnant?

Amy age 8
I’m not going to write about the sea. My baby brother is always screaming and being sick. My Dad keeps shouting at my Mom, and my big sister has just got pregnant, so I can’t think what to write.

Christopher age 7
Some fish are dangerous. Jelly fish 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 into chargers.

Laura age 5
My mom has fish nets, but doesn’t catch any fish.

Valerie age 6
When I grow up, I want to be captain of a big ship, and have lots of sailors.

Julie age 7
On holiday my Mom went water skiing. She fell off when she was going very fast. She says she won’t do it again because water shot up her fanny.
