Funny Things That Kids Say
As a children’s entertainer at Bluestone, I’m used to hearing all sorts of weird and wonderful outbursts from our pint-sized guests.
Here are just a few of the funny things the little ones have come out with over the years:
Me: Are you ok? why do you keep checking your thumbs?
Child: I have to keep them very still.
Me: Why's that?
Child: Dad said that if I keep wiggling them playing games they'll fall off!
Child: My Dad says he wishes the fairies would get rid of some of Mummy’s shoes... but mum says the fairies took dad’s hair instead!
Me: What's wrong?
Child: I've got mud on my shoes, my mum will be cross…
Other child: hmm, are you from England?
Child: Have you got a girlfriend?
Me: I have a wife.
Child: What's a wife?
Me: It’s a girlfriend you love very much and you marry her.
Child: Oh right, so what colour is her face?
Child: Want to hear a joke?
Me: Yeah sure.
Child: Why did the chicken cross the road?
Me: I don’t know, why?
Child: Erm... (thinks) LADYBIRD!
Child: I saw a dragon once and he breathed fire and it burnt a turtle. But don’t worry, the turtle was ok because he’s a pirate.
Child: Can I ask you a question?
Me: Yes, of course.
Child: You dance funny.
Me: Who here believes in fairies?
Child: Dad! Put your hand down you big sissy!
Me: Ok everyone close your eyes and count how many woodland sounds you can hear.
Child: I can hear 6…
Other child: Well, I can hear 7…
Other child: I can hear 500!
My Fellow Entertainer: My Names Loopy Lou….
Child: My Names Bouncing Ben…..
Other child: My Names Silly Sammi…..
Other child: My Names Racing Ted…..
Other child: No Ted, you can't have that! We are doing alliteration!
As a father of three, my girls cannot believe how I managed to survive going on holiday in the late 80’s and early 90’s.
Our motto here at Bluestone National Park is ‘Let’s Play’ with ‘Free Range’ short break holidays in Pembrokeshire.
That’s all about children of all ages having the chance to undertake activities that might never have the chance to do at home – from making campfires, building tree houses, having adventures in the woods, kayaking on our lake, looking for bugs under stones and even whizzing down zip wires.
Remember when you were a kid and how boring you found car travel? As we grow up I don’t think the boredom of the car journey really disappears, we just learn how to better deal with our feelings of boredom and agitation at traffic jams and long journeys!
