Caffeinated Randomness: Kids' Rewrites

Kids Rewrite Old Proverbs

A first grade teacher collected old, well known Proverbs. She gave each kid in her class the first half of a proverb, and had them come up with the rest:

As you shall make your bed so shall you
mess it up.

Better to be safe than
punch a 5th grader.

Strike while the
bug is close.

It's always darkest before
daylight savings time.

Never underestimate the power of

You can lead a horse to water but

Don't bite the hand that
looks dirty.

No news is
... impossible.

A miss is as good as a
... Mr.

You can't teach an old dog new
... math.

If you lie down with the dogs, you'll
stink in the morning.

Love all, trust
... me.

The pen is mightier than the
... pigs.

An idle mind is
the best way to relax.

Where there's smoke, there's
... pollution.

Happy the bride who
gets all the presents!

A penny saved is
... not much.

Two's company, three's
... the Musketeers.

Don't put off tomorrow what
you put on to go to bed.

Laugh and the whole world laughs with you, cry and
you have to blow your nose.

None are so blind as
... Helen Keller.

Children should be seen and not
spanked or grounded.

If at first you don't succeed
get new batteries.

You get out of something what you
see pictured on the box.

When the blind leadeth the blind
get out of the way.

There is no fool like
... Aunt Eddie.
