Having Fun With Tongue Twisters

Have you ever been sitting around the house with the kids and bored to tears? You don’t want them watching television or playing video games either. You want them to find something to do that is going to keep them entertained and maybe educate them a little. We all know that most kids know that fun and learning is almost always a trap.

However, what if there was a way that we could make them laugh, improve their speech and offer a stronger vocabulary? Thankfully, there is and it comes in the form of fun and exciting tongue twisters.

While a tongue twister may sound like an immense form of pain in your mouth, it could not be further from the truth! In fact, a tongue twister is simply when a group of similar words are placed in a sentence and create a difficult situation for an unexpecting individual. While these tongue twisters are more than willing to give anyone’s speech a run through they will serve up some serious giggles. With that in mind, we thought it would be fun to get you off running with some of our favorite tongue twisters.

Now there are three rules you need to know if you are going to try these. One, you have to say them three times each. Two, you have to say them as fast as possible. And three, you have to laugh!

If you have ever gone to the beach, you more than likely have come across your fair share of seashells. In fact, this is exactly what ha[ppend to poor little Sally one afternoon:

“Sally sells silver sea shells… by the shiny sea shore…
So she can see… the shimmering silver ships”

Where you able to keep up with Sally and her seashells or did your tongue get tied up?
