26 Times Kids' Homework Assignments Turned Embarrassingly Rated R

kids homework funny

Getting kids to do their homework is a chore in and of itself. There will be questions the kids don't know how to answer, dozens of spelling mistakes, and maybe even times when even mom and dad can't figure out the solution to a problem. But what to do when a child goes rogue and answers the questions in an ahem "explicit" way?


Not on purpose, of course, but there is always that one child who doesn't quite know how to spell "clock." While it is hysterical if mom or dad catches it in time, should they miss it, they could have a lot of explaining to do at the next parent-teacher conference. 

There have always been kids who have some "interesting" interpretations of mops, scissors, and what it looks like to be sprayed with a water gun (LOL). The difference now is that parents and caregivers all have cellphones and social media to keep track of every hilarious thing their kids write down. And some of the things they come up with are … pretty hilariously inappropriate. 

Truly these are all cases of kids say the darnedest things, and hey, everyone has to be really bad at spelling and drawing until they get good. These X-rated flops are the internet's gain! Check out these amazing homework fails which go to show that parents do need to look over a child's homework before it gets submitted. From accidental curse words to anatomically correct drawings, these homework fails are the laugh every parent needs today. but honestly, these homework fails would be too cringey if these kids weren't so cute!

A Surprising Revelation

A Surprising Revelation

Whoops! This kid's totally innocent spelling mistake has some pretty terrible implications … especially for poor Veronica. As the child's mom writes in her  Instagram caption , "Wow Lucian, stay away from Veronica."

'How Many Girls Like to Play With Balls?'

'How Many Girls Like to Play With Balls?'

Truly the question of our time, how many girls do like to play with balls? We'd be willing to bet money that whoever this question writer is, he or she certainly got a quick chuckle from writing this double entendre of a prompt.

It Was Supposed to Say 'To Get in Your PJs and Go to Sleep'

It Was Supposed to Say 'To Get in Your PJs and Go to Sleep'

Oh boy, this tiny mistake has us rolling. The owner of the since-deleted Instagram account made it known that, "It was supposed to say 'to get in your PJs and go to sleep.'"

Luckily this mistake was caught before this child turned her assignment in, but think about the look on the teacher's face!

He Takes Off His What?

He Takes Off His What?

What? They meant, "He takes off his rooster" … right? We get it, the c and s sounds can be hard to master. Unfortunately for this child, much to his/her future embarrassment!

Not *Quite* a Mop

Not *Quite* a Mop

A little rhyme about this photo:

This assignment turned out to be a flop when this child misdrew a mop Their spelling is seamless, but they drew a … oh my, and now their grade is not tops.

A Creative Answer

A Creative Answer

The  Instagram mom  who posted this gem captioned this assignment, "Couldn't stop laughing after checking my son's homework." Look, learning new words is tough , OK?

Not Blaming the Dog for This One

Not Blaming the Dog for This One

Hey, at least this drawing is truthful. This little guy spoke from his heart and his heart said "Oops" when he passed gas. We especially like the tornado of gas coming from his bottom.

Just a Tiny Bug of a Problem

Just a Tiny Bug of a Problem

"That moment when you realize you need to teach your daughter how to spell 'insects,'" wrote an Instagram user who since deleted their account. Unfortunately, the top question also prompts the children to list ways that they can earn money. Yeesh !

The Thinker

The Thinker

"Judging by the little picture, #9 appears to be right. I don't think the teacher was amused though," an amused parent writes on Instagram . This parent isn't wrong though!

Just Like Mommy

Just Like Mommy

It's bad when Mom has to write a note to the teacher to explain herself the next day. Unfortunately for this mom, her daughter depicted her career working at Home Depot, as … well, something a little more adult.

Interpretive Art

Interpretive Art

This amused  Instagram  mom writes, "I can't even with this #homeworkfail. I think he is supposed to be on a seesaw?" Of course, a seesaw. We don't see anything else …

Careful With That Water Gun

Careful With That Water Gun!

This is a case of poor placement. All this little girl wanted to do was properly show her understanding of the word "drench," and now — well, now she's demonstrating something else completely. This situation definitely calls for a good eraser.

A poor scramble

A Poor Scramble

Yikes! This can't be what this little boy meant to write. What he meant is  his pen is in a goat  — wait, no! That still doesn't make sense. What's going on here, anyway?


Every little girl goes through a horse phase, but sometimes it's the spelling that trips her up. Some facts mentioned about "hores": they have other "hores" friends, and surprisingly, her dad wants a "hores, but my mom says no." Hmm.

Almost ... Doesn't Count

Almost … Doesn't Count

This one will make one do a double take. T is for what? Thank goodness for the teacher's note at the bottom! It's a little wink-wink, nudge-nudge at Mom and Dad for this confusing title.

A Little Accident

A Little Accident

As the Instagram user pointed out, this was supposed to be a drawing of someone spitting on the ground. Instead, it looks like, well, we're not sure. It could be a person balancing on a pile of rocks in rated G land. Or, it could be someone pooping. Or peeing. Or shooting rocks from some unknown place we don't want to think about. Like all great works of art, it's open to interpretation.

Technically, They're Right...

Technically, They're Right …

Listen, to be fair, there are probably quite a few parents who have one of these boxes in the fridge. And I mean, the kid isn't wrong about the shape! And as keepingupwiththevissmas noted, at least the teach got a good laugh.

The Wrong Noun

The Wrong Noun

It is a noun … just the wrong one. Oh what missing a simple letter can do. It happens all the time, but it can be awfully embarrassing, and totally hilarious when it does.

Trust Us, He Had a Different Drink In Mind

Trust Us, He Had a Different Drink in Mind

This is laugh-out-loud hysterical. Phonetically, they nailed it. In actuality …

This little one really tried and came really close, but instead, things went really awry. We can only imagine that teachers reaction.

So Close

It's definitely confusing, but that's not exactly what happens in fractions, bud. This is why it's so important to check the kid's homework before sending it back into school each morning.


The parents of this one should honestly be proud. They raised a resourceful kid. Maybe they should let them know though that cannibalism isn't really a healthy diet. Just imagine!

A Set Up

OK, looking at this question, the teach had to be trolling for funny answers right? They were totally set up to fail. Inappropriateness aside, we say the kid still should have gotten full credit.

Suspicious Leaf

Suspicious Leaf

We're sure more than a few parents were laughing at this assignment. Honestly, it probably looked pretty innocent until it got colored in green. The publisher should be able to do better though.


Not sure if I'd want to go out with one of these hats honestly. Valiant effort, kid. Poor kid. Who knew a simple, straightforward hat drawing could go left so quickly?

If This Were Anatomy Class

If This Were Anatomy Class

Props to this kid for knowing the basics at least? Though we're sure the arrow was intended to point elsewhere, we can't help but wonder what else they were expecting.

Witty As Hell

Perhaps it's not R-rated, but it sure is dark. Oh, and funny as hell. This kid has clearly made all the right connections and is thinking quite logically. They've probably watched enough cartoons to know how things work in real life.

18 Funny Homework Answers from Kids Who Are Going Places

These snarky students are smart alecks at heart

  • Holiday Humor

When you're a  student , homework is an unavoidable fact of life. Kids these days often face hours of homework assignments each week—it's no wonder that some of their answers turn out a little snarky. 

Lucky for us, the funniest homework answers often end up on the Internet, courtesy of amused parents or teachers . Some of these students are being deliberately funny; others may very well be trying ( and failing ) to find the right answer. We think every single one of them deserves a place in the  Smart Aleck Hall of Fame .

Extra Credit for the Snazzy Drawing

"Show your thinking?" 

Challenge accepted!

"What do you need to find?"

"The answer."

Thank you, Captain Obvious. That's really helpful .

Just Following the Directions

The assignment said to write "< or >" so that's exactly what this student did. What's the problem here?

You know what they say — never trust a fart. 

For those who may not know, "shart" is slang for what happens when you do trust a fart. Use your imagination.

That's Just Your Opinion

Some say Tony is disciplined and loves music. Others say Tony is probably a huge nerd. No shame in that game, Tony!

Seems Legit

Why do we know anything , Sharon? Because we're SMART!

Somebody give this kid a scholarship.

Don't Be Silly, Kid

Pssh. "Tedison" is not even a real name... but we totally wish it was.

Failing Biology and Acing Zoology

Sure, this student doesn't know the difference between an ovary and a fallopian tube, but check out that kick-butt tiger face! Points for creativity?

Find X? No problem, there it is. It was right there all along! How did you miss that, Teach?

The Metric System Is Confusing

We can partially blame the American system of measurement for this one, but this student also gets bonus points for the sheer genius of the  utterly sarcastic remark. 

So Wrong, Yet So Right

Again, this answer isn't even wrong. It's technically totally, 100% correct! Maybe the teacher needs to rethink those test questions.

(Nah, not really.)

"April Ham Lincoln."

Remember what the great former president April Ham Lincoln once said: "Four scones and seven beers ago."

Wait, that's not right. Or is it?

An Example of Being Too Honest

This sounds like something out of "Breaking Bad." We really, REALLY hope this is a little kid spelling error situation.

She Must Work at the School in #13

Some teachers will go above and beyond to bond with their students, but this is ridiculous. Get your act together, Mrs. Edwards!

I See How It Is at Your House...

This is an actual quote from a first grade student. How did the teacher not die laughing?!

Comedian Chris Rock once famously said, "As a father, you have only one job to do: Keep your daughter off the pole!"

Clearly, this kid's family has some work to do in that department.

Hold Up There, Buddy

From "I like to play football" to "I am a god" in just a few short sentences. That's quite a leap!

Tell the truth: this is Tom Brady 's homework from 30 years ago, isn't it?

That's Extremely Literal

The difference between six and eight IS that eight is more curly. That's not silly – it's just accurate.

Okay, so I never did that well in math class either. Sue me.

She Deserves Extra Credit

We'll end on a positive note. This student followed directions to the letter and did exactly what she was told to do:

"Write a story to go with this picture. Use capitals and punctuation."

She not only created a funny story about this really, really weird picture of a cat overseeing a pile of hot dogs, but she also used CAPITALS and lots of exclamation points. Who cares what the teacher thought — this kid deserves an A+!

We Can't Stop Laughing at These Kids' Hilarious Homework Blunders

Updated on 8/31/2020 at 12:40 PM

kids homework funny

After a long day of school — whether virtual or in-person — the idea of homework can drain the life out of both parents and children (but mostly parents, obviously). Kids will be kids though, so even in something as mundane as homework, children somehow find a way to make us laugh uncontrollably.

Whether they were due to hilarious spelling errors, kid-drawings that could be interpreted as, um, other (inappropriate) things, or just the ol' Common Core blunder , the following homework assignments failed so hard that we can't stop laughing.

Confusing Common Core

We're as stumped about Common Core as this kiddo was.

Literal Interpretation

Literal Interpretation

I mean, it says "draw a picture."

Follows Directions Well

Also very literally.

Friends For the Win

That's an A+ in girl power right there.

Capitals and Punctuation

Looks like Lola deserves an A for this one!

Show Your Thinking

Well, he did , didn't he?

Natural Resources Problem Solving

This is conservation at its finest.

Stray Doodles

He just wanted to represent the number four with the very best gingerbread men he could draw.

Holy Homework

A strong ego, for sure.

Simple Subtraction

Open-ended response.

"Eating bacon!"

What Makes You Happy?

What Makes You Happy?

Hot cockolate — erm, chocolate — makes us happy, too.

Show How You Know the Answer

Why have three rainbows when you could have 10?

Multiple Choice

We think that this is a perfectly acceptable answer regarding tornado safety.

Alphabetical Order

You've really got to specify further on these things.

I Like Fractioned Butts and I Cannot Lie

Anything that is naturally split in half is made for fractions, no?

What a Disaster

Hey, we think a Sharknado is a disaster for sure.

Reality Check

This kid is going to be a small circle of friends kind of person . . .

Stuck on an Island

That's some serious (dark) thinking ahead.

25 hilarious answers kids gave for their test and assignment questions

The unfiltered side of a child's brain often comes out at its best in tests or school assignments.

Editor's note: This article has been originally published on May 13, 2022. It has since been updated.

Talking to kids can be mind-boggling. Most of them don't yet have that in-built brain filter telling them what to and what not to say or do. Their wild imagination and curiosity can invoke the most intriguing—and sometimes shocking—questions and responses. This often appears at its most entertaining when they encounter tests or school assignments and their creative minds run wild and free—with hilarious results.

The Instagram profile Funny Kids Test Answers has done a great job of compiling a bunch of these rib-tickling instances of child genius. Here are 25 of the funniest:
