Chicken of the Sea Funniest Kids’ Quotes Contest™ (plus giveaway!)

Chicken of the Sea contest

My kids can really make me laugh.  There are times that they stop my in my tracks with the things they say or ask.  That is why, when asked if I wanted to talk to you about the Chicken of the Sea Funniest Kids’ Quotes Contest, I was more than happy to!

Parents are encouraged to visit Chicken of the Sea on Facebook and submit a short, written description showcasing their child’s funny comment or question. The contest submission period will end June 6, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. PDT.  Starting June 7 at 9 a.m. PDT, contest participants are encouraged to get their Facebook friends to vote for them once per day. Voting ends June 28, 2011 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. The grand-prize winner, first runner-up and second runner-up will be announced Thursday, July 7, 2011 at noon PDT.

Want to know what you can win because of your funny kid?  You could win a family a trip to a Disney park, or a cash prize of $1,000 or $500.  In addition, during the contest submission period, Chicken of the Sea will also be giving away prize packs to one random contest entrant each Friday.

Speaking of prize packs, I have TWO to give away!  This is a fun one filled with lots of Chicken of the Sea goodies including a dish towel, oven mitt, measuring cups, bag clip, keychain and Chicken of the Sea seafood products all packed in a reusable grocery bag.  Take a look!

    My toddler came up to me the other day with her fingers plugging her ears and asked me if I could hear her. It cracked me up. She hasn’t put it together that just because she can’t hear me, I can still hear her.

    LOL – After falling into a very deep puddle (waist-deep to him) because he chose not to listen to me when I yelled, “Noooooo!” My little guy (2.5 y.o.), after I fished him out, said, “I listen Mommy next time!” We’ll see if he actually does!

    At a family dinner I told our 4yr old to take 2 or 3 bits of what she was given to eat and say it was good if asked. So when someone asked her if she liked something, she asked me in a loud voice, did you say to say the food was good or I liked it, even if I don’t like it.

  15. Crystal K. says

    I was talking to my best friend and said something about being “cold-blooded” and her son overheard and piped up with, “No, you aren’t! Frogs are cold-blooded!” My friend explained that that had been his lesson for the day in kindergarten, but it was very cute!

    My husband and I were talking about a book. My daughter, who was sitting nearby, said to my husband “You can read?” Guess he should read more in front of her.

    the other day at the dinner table my husband was getting after the 3 year old for something he had done earlier in the day. He asked the 3 year old a question and was ignored. My husband raised his voice and asked again. The 3 year old looks up from his food and said “Dad, I am trying to eat right now. I really can’t discuss this now” and he looked back down and went back to eating. It was terribly sassy and bad…but also very funny

    Little Man was at his aunts house and the smoke alarm went off when they opened the oven door. He looked up and said, “nana’s cooking!” We all cracked up, because we know where he learned that. My mom is an awful cook and she tends to burn everything! Guess he’s heard the alarm at her house!
