When Adults Look at Kids’ Drawings, They See Something Completely Different!

By  | 

The beauty of art is something we all cherish. Occasionally, a profoundly impactful painting or drawing can profoundly touch our souls, evoking emotions and sentiments we never imagined existed. Likewise, children possess a knack for saying the most amusing things. Sometimes intentional, other times unintentional. Therefore, when we combine children and art, their creations can unintentionally become a source of hilarity, often bordering on inappropriate. Let us explore a collection of the most amusing drawings crafted by children, which ingeniously incorporate both terrible and brilliant innuendos.

Don’t Ask, Don’t Get

My goodness! This tooth fairy request is undeniably ambitious. Back in our day, we were content with a mere 20 cents beneath our pillows. However, this child appears to be demanding a considerable fortune for the rather ordinary occurrence of losing a tooth! It’s possible that all her teeth fell out at once, leading her to believe she deserves more than the customary compensation from the tooth fairy. Nonetheless, it remains uncertain whether this particular request will be fulfilled in the near future.

Time Out

Apologies, but may we confirm if this drawing originates from our own childhood? Oh, wait a moment! That’s not possible because, during our younger years, phones were only just being introduced. However, if we had experienced childhood in the era of smartphones, we would absolutely turn them off when bombarded with numerous calls from friends. This child truly resonates with our inner selves—we all require moments of solitude, regardless of our age.


Oh dear, we are all familiar with the sensation of waking up the morning after indulging in a few too many drinks the previous night. That throbbing headache, queasy feeling, and a touch of anxiousness as we ponder if any embarrassing moments occurred that are now hazy in our memory. Typically, we can rely on our friends to inform us of any awkward incidents, but this fortunate lady has her child ready to sketch incriminating pictures of her intoxicated escapades. How fortunate that the child possesses an artistic talent for publicly highlighting her mother’s drinking habits. It’s undeniably a creative approach.

Our House

This particular artwork is truly puzzling. Does it genuinely represent the appearance of people in the artist’s house, or have they been excessively influenced by the film “Nightmare Before Christmas”? Furthermore, we find ourselves pondering the object’s identity in the bottom-right window. Is it a balloon, or does it depict something entirely different? Whatever the intention behind this piece, we feel a mix of curiosity about visiting this person’s house and a strong inclination to keep our distance. It seems that the latter option is likely the wiser choice.

Truth Hurts

Oh my, receiving the truth during a breakup is always painful. In the depths of our love for someone, we often convince ourselves that there might be a glimmer of hope—perhaps the other person will have a change of heart and choose to reconcile. However, when the answer is a definitive “no,” accepting it can be incredibly challenging. Yet, when our own children voice that truth, it becomes difficult to ignore. Apologies, Dad, but it seems that your chances are not favored in this situation.

Mirror Image

Once again, we are presented with a child’s drawing that serves as a striking interpretation of their mother’s life choices. While we can assume that this young artist didn’t intend to portray their mom in such a harsh manner, the depiction of her as a monstrous creature in the morning, transforming into a lady of the night, is undoubtedly unsettling. We can only imagine the sense of horror it must have evoked in Mom. It certainly isn’t the impression one hopes to leave on their child. However, let’s remain optimistic and hope that she found humor in it rather than taking it too personally.

Graphic Novel

Goodness, gracious! Being the recipient of this note is definitely undesirable. Who exactly is this mysterious Valerie? Could she be another sibling, a friend (or possibly a frenemy) of the author, or someone else in their life they wish would disappear? Perhaps Valerie is associated with great suffering in their mind, like a math teacher or swimming instructor—or something else entirely? The truth reveals that this note is directed toward the child’s babysitter, who is clearly not well-liked by the author. Regardless of what Valerie may have done, we can safely assume that she does not deserve the gruesome fate depicted in this threatening letter.

Serious Santa

Oh, my! This child definitely possesses a sense of entitlement. It’s admirable when individuals clearly understand their desires and express them openly, even being direct in communicating their expectations and dreams. That’s wonderful! However, should someone inform this child that Santa is not actually obligated to provide them with a pony? Back in our day, finding a tangerine in our stockings brought us immense gratitude. Nevertheless, despite its slightly menacing appearance, we can appreciate the artistic representation of an angry-looking pony. That, indeed, is a form of art.

Sorry Not Sorry

What better represents the “sorry, not sorry” mentality than this note? On the one hand, it’s an underwhelming apology letter, as the writer makes it abundantly clear that they have no remorse for their actions. Yet, on the other hand, there’s a certain level of admiration for the sheer honesty conveyed in the message. While apologizing is generally considered a positive gesture, it’s difficult to force oneself to feel sorry when the genuine sentiment is absent. In that regard, the child’s emotional awareness showcased here is rather impressive.

Thank You, Mom

Isn’t it wonderful when our children recognize and value all the efforts we put into caring for them? Often, our days seem to revolve around cooking, cleaning, and even extracting squished pasta from nostrils, yet appreciation is rarely expressed. So, we can imagine the joy that must have filled this mom’s heart when her little one finally showed gratitude, even if it took on a somewhat morbid tone in the end. Sometimes, children’s accuracy and matter-of-factness serve as a reminder to appreciate the unspoken gestures and actions that go unnoticed.
