Kids are natural poets. Even the ones that are too young to read and write can drop a line that's so funny, so beautiful and so profound, Shakespeare would shamelessly steal it if he was still around.

NYC school teacher Alyssa Cowit "believes children are honest and curious, and while often perplexed, they’re brilliant – and that it's a teacher's job to take what children say seriously." Cowit was so fascinated by the phrases that were coming out from her kindergarteners that she teamed up with Greg Dunbar, a digital marketing manager with Walt Disney Studios, and started Live from Snack Time, to achieve them.

Accepting submissions from around the globe, they have grown the project to more than 625k followers and have helped adults understand that children aren't just seeking attention, but also think out loud, soaking up new information, and solving problems 24/7.

Continue scrolling to check out some of the best phrases Live from Snack Time received, and fire up our earlier articles here, here, and here for more kids' wisdom.

When my colleague Liucija reached out to Alyssa and Greg, the creators of Live From Snack Time, they said that during the pandemic when people had more time with their families, they saw an abundance of submissions and new followers hit their account.

“We've seen tremendous growth of both our community and the [number] of quotes they are submitting. In a time of so much uncertainty and sadness and fear, I think people looked to us for light humor and relatable content,” they explained.

The duo are always trying to find new ways of how to engage their fans. Recently, for example, Live From Snack Time partnered with a family in the UK (Woodism_Ink) who create art based on their autistic son's amazing quotes. “This helped bring awareness and acceptance for autism and raised money for an important charity!”

Another important expansion of their project introduced a collection of children's book suggestions on their website. “We feel that children's books are one of the most effective and practical tools for initiating critical conversations about race and racism, so with the help of our incredible community of followers, we developed a library of books organized by reading level and linked to purchase them from Black-owned bookstores.”

I understand this one. Sometimes it just goes through you. You read and read, and maybe even understand the content superficially, but you just can't seem to get it inside your head, feeling kind of absent. It does happen, however, that this knowledge gets into your head days, even years later, after you've read it. Sometimes your brain delays the knowledge.

But even with all the new campaigns, Alyssa and Greg manage to keep their content as interesting as ever. Each day, Live From Snack Time successfully proves that kids can be as (if not more) creative than the adults that raise them.

Alyssa and Greg said that at this point, 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.”
