NYC School Teacher Shares Hilarious And Pure Things Kids Have Said (30 New Pics)
Very often adults write children off as little daredevils, attention seekers, and kiddos who don’t really understand the world just yet. When in reality, they are some of the brightest minds and most honest souls in this world. And the internet’s beloved project Live From Snack Time is here to celebrate that.
Created by NYC school teacher Alyssa Cowit and Greg Dunbar, a digital marketing manager with Walt Disney Studios, Live From Snack Time has amassed 669k followers on Instagram and 64k on Facebook. It features kids’ quotes that teachers and parents submitted from all around the world, and they are either the most wholesome thing you'll read today, or something so hilarious you will burst out laughing.

Live From Snack Time started as an account for parents and teachers to highlight the brilliant and hilarious thoughts of kids. 7 years later, it has become an international hub for people to submit kids' quotes and seek out the account for laughter, honesty, and joy. Bored Panda reached out to Alyssa and Greg, the creators of Live From Snack Time who said that the project has changed drastically. “All the quotes we posted used to be from my classroom, now we take submissions from all over the world. We get tons of submissions weekly about every topic you could think of.”
Most importantly, Live From Snack Time proves how brilliant and unfiltered kids are. “They say all the things we wish we could. It's so incredibly pure and honest, we must listen,” Alyssa and Greg told us. “Our mission still stands true, we need to take these quotes and comments seriously, kids are just trying to navigate the world and it's our job to help them,” they added.

The creators of the viral sensation Live From Snack Time recently helped promote a fundraiser for the Children's Hospital in LA in partnership with @OverheardLA. “We're always searching for ways we can help and support causes related to education and projects involving kids,” they said.
According to Alyssa and Greg, the project has a unique following of people of all different ages and walks of life. “It's been a major goal of ours to create some sort of podcast or live show that highlights the different professions that congregate, laugh, share, and enjoy our quotes.”

Alyssa said that “Greg (co-founder) and I work hard to connect our followers with each other. We would love to interview child psychologists, children's authors, parents, school principals, kid's TV show producers, really anyone that you would be interested in,” she said and urged people to “DM us, tell us what you think!”

The success of the LFST project has to do with the fact that it brings parents, educators and the little ones together from all over the world. “With submissions from 6 continents (c'mon Antarctica!), we have living proof that kids are talking about the same topics and have similar questions around the world, especially when it comes to the pandemic.

In fact, the pandemic increased Live From Snack Time following dramatically. “I think with all the terrifying and concerning news going on both on and off of social media, people look to us for light, funny, and relatable humor,” Alyssa concluded.
Previously, Alyssa said that "from the quotes that came in, it was clear that kids missed their friends, wanted to beat (or 'beat up') the virus, and some weren't afraid to tell their parents they were a little sick of all the time they were spending together! We are all more similar than people realize, and the mission, brand, and content are universal and dynamic.”
Alyssa hopes that Live From Snack Time will help people to realize how funny and curious kids can be. "I recommend not taking their questions lightly, they are trying to figure out the world... but it doesn't hurt to laugh about it once in a while," she told HuffPost.
