20 Hilarious Letters Written by Kids


A few weeks ago, Dylan took it upon himself to write his Grandpa a letter. It was the first time he’d done it, and, obviously, we thought it was the cutest thing we’d ever seen. I was insanely proud of him for spelling “night” correctly. Until I saw how he spelled “granpa,” “befor” and “crismiss.” Oh well, he’s six.

But, while his letter is adorable and sweet, it’s not unintentionally funny or mean spirited. And, let’s be honest, those are the most entertaining notes from kids.

I dug through the internet and found 20 of the funniest letters that have been written by children. Check them out below and then tell me, have your kids ever written an unintentionally hilarious letter?

    If I were this kid's mother, I'd be VERY worried about what was going on at this camp.

    Can You Divorce Your Parents Over a Haircut?
    This child REALLY likes their hair. And...they might be a *tad* melodramatic.

  • Dear Neighbor: You Are Making My Teacher a Wretched Witch 6 of 20
    Dear Neighbor: You Are Making My Teacher a Wretched Witch
    What's that saying? "When mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy." Apparently, that goes for teachers, too.

  • Mom: Fails at Cooking 7 of 20
    Mom: Fails at Cooking
    The story behind this is that DAD does all the cooking. Hopefully he helps with the math homework, too.

  • Dear Mom: I’m Not Tattling. 8 of 20
    Dear Mom: I'm Not Tattling.
    I suspect these kids get in trouble for tattling. This girl is trying to rat her siblings out while buttering up her mom. BRILLIANT.

    I *completely* agree with this list. It should be in the New Teacher Handbook.

    This could never happen in our house, because when my kids fart, they make sure EVERYONE knows it.

    The "Love" crossed out kills me dead. Also, I have never, ever been too sad to eat.

    I laugh when I think about how mad this kid must have been at the grammar and spelling corrections.

    Sisterly Love
    I don't think she meant for it to look this way, but doesn't it appear that the heart is wielding a sword? If I were Nola, I'd be nicer.

  • Sandwich FAIL 18 of 20
    Sandwich FAIL
    I just wish I knew what kind of sandwich it was. Also, if that had been my kid, I would have given him liverwurst the next day, just to make a point.

  • Grandma’s House is Neat! 19 of 20
    Grandma's House is Neat!
    She meant neat in a tidy sort of way, not cool or fun.

  • Check Your Priorities, DAD 20 of 20
    Check Your Priorities, DAD
    This little girl's dad made her wait to go outside because he was watching football. I'm not a betting person, but I'd feel pretty safe putting money on the fact that she was a little upset about it.
