Creative writing — kid style


I asked my kids if they wanted to tell any stories.  The following jokes and tales were dictated to me…

Flour was in a cup, and it got ground.  — Cameron

Daddy once went to the workshop, he got a wrench, and he wacked himself on the head.  Just joking! — Cory

Once upon a time, Daddy was a little boy and he took a red oil can that had red oil in it, and he dumped it on his arm.   He ran to Grammy, and Daddy said, “Grammy!  Grammy!  I’m bleeding!”  She wiped it up and saw there was no bleeding, and took a broom and went, “YA! YA! YA!” and chased him with a broom.  — Cory

Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Megan.  She took a walk in the woods, she found wild flowers, she picked them with her sister, she watered them in a cup, and she put them in the fridge, and she froze them, and they died.  Oops!  — Cory

Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Mommy.  She went out into the woods, and she found a bear, and she went with the bear and she found some flowers, and then they almost died.  — Cameron

Once upon a time, there was a little boy named Bompa.  He went out into the woods and he took a couple of jars to collect snakes.  And he took a basket and fishing rods to catch crabs and fish.  Now he took one silly thing.  He brought a pair of underpants to catch turtles.  He sewed up the legs, and he caught a turtle in it!  There was only a kind of big hole on the top to let the turtle in, and he trapped the turtle.  And then, he went to catch some toads and some snakes.  He caught a snake and a toad at the same time, and the snake ate the toad, and so there was a little frog jumping around in the snake’s belly that made the snake fly all over the place!  — Kirstyn

Once upon a time, there was a little boy named Bompa.  He had a trampoline, and he was bouncing.  He went for a walk, after he bounced for a while.  He brought two dogs with him, and they both found a groundhog, and they ate it.  Then, they found a porcupine in the woods, and Brandi, which was the oldest dog, she ate the porcupine and got spikes in her mouth.  They opened her mouth to take the spikes out, but they couldn’t get them out.  So she had to walk with her mouth open, with spikes in it.  She tried to blow them out, but one flew out of her nose, and landed on Bompa’s toe.  — Cory

Editor’s comment:  The only completely non-fictional story in this collection is the story of Dee painting red oil on his arm.  It should be noted that he cried, “Mom! Mom!” and not “Grammy! Grammy!”


About patchofheaven

"Mom" sums it up quite well! I cook, I clean, I homeschool, and yes, I do still ride a tricycle. I love to read books to my kids, and every once in a while I manage to read a book "all by my big self." I journal about my life, here at patchofheaven; hoping to remember, grow, love more, and entertain my mom and other readers!

  1. Brought a smile to my face, thanks! If Bomma was around, she could tell the stories about herself and her brothers! Though, they don’t need anymore ideas to get into mischief!

  2. The boys really liked these! I think you might want to give a lesson to kirstyn about the difference between toads and frogs though…

    • Haha! You mean that they’re not interchangeable? Maybe these were magic amphibians. I’ll have to ask her. (I’m also not sure how Bompa caught crabs in the woods, or how the toad made the snake fly.)
