#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:

1.) As long as your quote makes us smile, it can include anything from charming remarks, jokes, witticisms, observations, declarations, or profound statements.
2.) Make sure to submit the child’s name and age at the time of the said quote.
3.) Your entry must be PG and kid-friendly to qualify for this contest.
4.) Enter via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or in the comments section below by May 31, 2015. Don’t forget to include the hashtag #UGKidQuotes with your entry.

Tips for choosing your quote:

1.) Keep your quotes short. The fewer the words, the bigger and bolder they’ll be.
2.) Take advantage of the “context line” to communicate part of the story. See an example in the image below.
3.) We won’t tell if you want to take a little creative license to make the quote shorter!

Good luck!
