Over the past two weeks, we received nearly 80 hilarious entries on Facebook, Instagram and the blog for our #UGKidQuotes Contest. Picking a winning kid quote certainly wasn’t easy! Our team had a great time giggling over the witty, sassy, creative, adorable, and surprisingly insightful words that kids can conjure up. We couldn’t stand the thought of not sharing the joy from this contest, so before we get to the winner of the free Kid Quotes Custom Wall Art, we’ve rounded up our favorite honorable mentions for you to enjoy!

There were funny revelations about food…

“You look as pretty as a bell pepper in sunshine.” – Noah, age 9

(When asked if he would like some broccoli) “No thank you, I don’t eat chlorophyll…” – Zach, age 9

 “Were there angels in the oven because this tastes like heaven?” (Sweet talking Mom) – Alison, age 8

“Can we go outside and drop some sunlight in our faces?” – Rori, age 3

#UGKidQuotes Contest | UncommonGoods

When you’re hanging out with the kids in your lives, don’t you wish you could write down everything they say? In between developing their own personalities and imaginations, kids always have the funniest, most charming perspectives on the world.  Knowing her memory couldn’t store all the delectable details of her kids’ lives, Artist Betsy Grimm searched for ways to preserve her favorite moments through art. Enter her hilarious Kid Quotes Custom Wall Art!

We are so excited about this colorful collection that we’ve decided to launch a contest to give away one free custom print! Share with us your favorite kid quote, including the child’s name and age, by leaving a comment below OR by tagging @uncommongoods via InstagramTwitter, or Facebook with the hashtag #UGKidQuotes. The best entry will be preserved into a custom print and mailed to the winner!

Official Rules:

Tips for choosing your quote:

1.) Keep your quotes short. The fewer the words, the bigger and bolder they’ll be.

3.) We won’t tell if you want to take a little creative license to make the quote shorter!
