As you probably know, kids are naturally poetic. Even when they are too young to read and write, they can be hilarious and profound.
With their deep and beautiful insights, many would make legends like Shakespeare blush with their witty one-liners.
Luckily, you don't have to imagine how wholesome kids can be, thanks to Alyssa Cowit, an NYC school teacher. She has set out to prove that children are brutally honest, brilliant, curious, and incredibly fascinating at times.
Cowit was so amused by the things her kindergarten pupils were saying that she partnered with Greg Dunbar, a Walt Disney Studios digital marketing manager, to put together this beautiful collection. Together, they set up Live from Snack Time, and they started to get submissions from all around the world.
Today, they have well over 600k fans who have helped everyone understand that children are a lot more than little attention seekers. Kids can think, process information, and solve complex problems in ways that can baffle most of us.
Check out these amazing Live from Snack Time submissions.
1. I Should Be Treated During My Birthday, Not The Other Way Around
2. Jude Kinda Has A Point
According to Alyssa and Greg, who created Live from Snack Time, people had more family time during the pandemic. As a result, people sent in more submissions, and more people were interested in their growing collection.
The pair believes that people were looking at their content as a great source of relatable humor at this incredibly stressful time.
3. What You Call A Long Day
4. This Kid Knows What They Want, And It Sounds Beautiful
5. Lots Of Hugs Remaining
The two have also revealed that they are always trying to find new ways to keep their fans engaged. Not long ago, they partnered up with a UK family to create art based on great quotes made by their artistic son.
They did this as a way to raise awareness around autism and raise money for a charitable organization.
They also tried to grow their project further by creating a collection of children's book suggestions on their site. As far as Alyssa and Greg are concerned, children's books offer a way for us to get essential conversations about race and racism started.
For this reason, they came up with a library of books that were arranged based on reading level. They also offered links through which people can purchase them from Black-owned bookstores.
6. Quite The Realization
7. Hilarious. A Common Problem For Absentminded Readers
8. Teachers Are So Special
However, although Alyssa and Greg are taking on new projects and trying out new things, they have not lost their goal of ensuring that their content is always intriguing. Daily, Live from Snack Time offers more interesting content showing that kids can be as creative as adults, and in some cases, even better than adults.
Apparently, the pair have already gotten submissions from 6 continents (Antarctica is yet to submit). This proves that kids think about the same issues, regardless of where they are in the world.
