Oh Art Fail, We Love You...Part 1

Can we say how awesome these Art Fails are? Well, technically we can't right now because we're dead. Lydia laughed so hard she fell out of her chair dead, and Kate took one look at the soccer ball penis and now she's dead too. We'll miss us...


I giggled when I saw this on the wall at my daughter's Catholic preschool....  and was speechless when I realized it was hers.....  and those of course are leg bones!!

I hope it isn't too late to share this with you.

Yesterday my 4yo daughter had her very 1st dance recital.  When it was over, she received her very 1st trophy.  She is so proud of it, that this morning she drew a picture of it, then insisted on bringing it to school to show the rest of the class.

Then she is sent it home with her boyfriend.

Not sure who will enjoy this artist's rending more: the class of 4yo kids or the parents of the 4yo boy she is trying to woo.

I have attached both a photo of the actual trophy and my daughter's drawing of it:

 My son did this when he was about 5. I'm so proud :D
Came across this today cleaning out the vast teetering pile of schoolwork brought home by my 7-yo. On the left she is eating dinner with her family, and on the right she is on the torture rack. Oh, wait. That's her practicing backbends for gymnastics. Silly me! We save the torture rack for weekends. :)
My son proudly brought home this painted clay version of himself. I was nervous asking what "the green thing" was.....he's sitting on a soccer ball!

  1. The monkey... thing... spewing Orange creamsickle juice... Awesomeness

  2. I. Love. It. ALL! Big Girl comes home from preschool all the time with art that is I proudly hang it up, but some of it makes me hope visitors to the house won't look too closely or ask questions. In her defense, she's not even 3 yet. But some of it makes me wonder what's really part of the rather pricey Montessori curriculum we're paying for...

  3. Oh my god - I totally have to send in the "Millenium Falcon" my 5 year old drew. The cockpit is very accurate!

  4. My five year old drew me with circles on my chest which he informed me were my boobs, and later drew himself from behind with circles for his buttcheeks. Oh how I wish I'd saved those! These are great!

  5. Thanks for sharing my daughter's p*rn! I mean, trophy sketch! She makes me so proud.

    And the ball? I can't breathe. I....can't....BREATHE....

  6. This is awesome. I can't decide which I like best. Probably the giant phallus your daughter gave to her boyfriend.

  7. My son walked up and looked at the fist picture and said, "I like that, thats for Christmas mom?" (Gingerbread man)LOL

    ... and then there was the Father's Day Gift.
    In classic Preschool fashion, the teacher asked the kids questions and wrote in the answers. (Ever played Telephone with a 4 year old?) The question: What is Daddy's Favorite Chore? The answer: "Taking ladies to the basement to give them sausages." !!! Not making this sh*t up!
    What the poor kid was *trying* to express: Daddy is a Massage Therapist who's work area is in the basement. ... .I can still picture the look on that teacher's face as i explained to her....

  9. Hilarious!! I particularly love the medieval instrument of torture/torture rack!

  10. I'm so proud that my son's "soccer ball" made it to the blog, but I'm sorry it killed you, Kate. I keep it hanging in the kitchen because I LOVE the double takes people do when they see it!

  11. I looooooooove the torture rack. Seriously. Would it be wrong to 1) make my children do that exact thing, and 2) take photos to plaster on the internet? I think not.

  12. OMG these are so great. I hope you frame these and show them in your house. IMAGINE the cocktail party conversation!

  13. OH MY FREAKIN GOD JUST KILL ME. you should've put a disclaimer at the top NOT to read this post at the office. although maybe you kinda did, but it should've been more direct, like a bomb threat. i'm about to get fired.

  14. MORE MORE MORE MORE MORE ....KEEP THEM COMING .... so so so so funny I pee'd my pants a little.
