Kids can be very creative when it comes to arts, crafts and drawing - using it as a way to express themselves.
Sometimes however, those adorable drawings can be interpreted a little differently to how they were intended when viewed by an adult.
It only takes a spelling mistake or the wrong positioning of a marker to turn an innocent drawing into an unintentionally inappropriate - but hilarious - piece of art to hold on to until their 21st birthday.

A mother in the US has shared a glimpse into the mind of her young son and the result is amusingly honest.
Cait took to social media to share the classwork of her kindy son, Jude.
As part of the work Jude was asked to illustrate the answer to the question: 'What I will look like when I am 100 years old'.
His answer was drawing three coffins under the ground with tombstones etched with the letters, R.I.P.
So brilliant was the work that it appeared on the popular Instagram account awkwardfamilyphoto.?
The drawing garnered a flood of responses from other parents.
"His first existential crisis," one person wrote.
"When you're wise beyond your years," said another. "He's a realist."
"My daughter drew the same when she did that project in Kindergarten, a single tombstone. I thought it was brilliant," a third person wrote.
"Hilarious" another wrote. "This is a sign of a very intelligent, perceptive little boy!!"
Another simply said: "What a weird school project?."
Radio and podcast host Laura Byrne has been left in hysterics over one of her daughter's drawings.
In the picture, dad appears to have some well, interesting additions and 'anatomically correct' detail, in his groin area?.
"This is too funny not to take up wall real estate," Laura wrote in a caption.
In a video, Byrne asks Marlie what the detail in the drawing actually is to which the toddler innocently replied:
"It's a skirt!"?
Clearly, this was a photo of mum, not dad.
"Relieved to discover it wasn't Matty's manhood on show," Laura continued in the caption.
Laura's friends and fans loved the adorable picture.
"Stop it! This is so cute," said a fan.
"It appears that your husband and mine wear different-sized skirts," joked another.
Toddlers love to stick stickers on everything. So if your child came home from daycare with new glittery items on their water bottle, you wouldn't think much of it.
Except if the sticker seemed a little.. er, inappropriate.
This is exactly what happened to one mum on TikTok, who ?thought her daughter Avery's daycare had given her a sparkly green marijuana sticker to stick on her bottle.
The US mum and educator went to call the centre to inquire about the 'craft supplies' they were giving out to the kids, only to realise she had ?mistaken the shape of the sticker.
?Turning the bottle around in a video to show followers on TikTok, the sticker was actually an innocent dragonfly.
"Your child accidentally created new 'merch'," someone commented on the video, laughing at the mistake.
"Wow, that's an unfortunate design," another wrote.
"That's hysterical," said a third. ?
Luckilly, the mum figured out what it actually was before the phone connected to the centre, saving herself the embarrassment.
When Melissa Czinner was handed a Valentine's Day card from her daughter Henley, seven, she thought it would be a sweet memento.
On closer inspection, however, it proved to be more X-rated than sweet, thanks to some shaky penmanship by Henley, from Wisconsin in the US.
While its handwritten message proves it was well intended ¨C "To Mum? and Dad, Love you soooooo much," there was more to this picture of a woman walking her dog.
Her mum's eye went straight to the 'dog treat' in the woman's pocket, which to many looked like something very different.
"I noticed it right away and was thinking the worst," Czinner told TODAY.
"She told us that it was just a dog treat in the girl's pocket."
Czinner also shared the drawing on TikTok, where it has so far notched up more than 200,000 views and left many in stitches.
"That's a bone alright," joked one. "Do not EVER get rid of this masterpiece," added another.
"Greatest thing I have ever seen," said one follower. ?
The US mum also said she was shocked at how much attention her video has received.
"At first there were just a few views and comments," she said. "Over the last few days, it exploded."?
A father has discovered some hilarious correspondence between his two children.?
"Found this on the bathroom floor," Blaise Sewell tweeted this week. "My kids communicating via note under the door (and apparently eating candy while on the toilet.)"
Child one: You pooping?
Child two: Yes
Child one: Want more sour patch?
Child two: Yes
Child one: OK hold on.
We all know that wrong letter can change the entire meaning of a sentence.
When a teacher asked her third-grade class what their priorities were for the year, one little girl made an innocent spelling mistake in her note.
"I want to get better at meth and read," declared the student proudly.
When the hilarious picture was recently shared to Instagram, it received almost 30,000 likes and comments.
"The drawing is painfully accurate," said one person.
"Love the winky face," wrote another.
"Practice makes perfect," concluded a third.
A great teacher can leave quite a mark on a child - and this girl's get well card is probably one her teacher won't forget for a while either.
One Redditor's daughter loved her teacher so much she made them a card after the they called in sick. The card approached sickness from an empathetic angle.
"I heard you weren't feeling good so here's something to learn... I'm not kidding. Whenever I don't feel good I just rush to the toilet," wrote the girl.
She urged her teacher to "just go poop!" and even provided a step-by-step drawing showing the process.
"I am sure the teacher will feel so much better after getting this," the girl's amused parent wrote in the caption.
Art galleries are enriching places to visit during the school holidays. Most have kid-oriented activities and guides, and they're a great way to let your child's imagination run wild.
But sometimes, their minds will go places your never expected.
Nine News reporter Leila McKinnon shared this poem her son Ted wrote for his sister when they visited the National Gallery of Victoria.
"Roses are red / violets are blue / you are so pitiful / you look like a poo," wrote Ted McKinnon.
According to Leila, "Ted was inspired by Melbourne to write a beautiful poem to his sister."
The best thing about being an aunt or uncle is that you get the love of an adorable child in your life, but without the responsibility that comes with parenthood.
However this uncle was a little taken aback when he received this drawing from his young nephew - especially when the little boy told him it was something to use "with his wife" on Valentine's Day.
The man was relieved when his nephew explained the drawing was three candles (obviously).
"My eight-year-old nephew sent me this great gift for Valentine's Day," the man wrote when sharing the photo on Reddit.
"Three candles for my dinner with my wifeĦSo sweet of him!"?
The great thing about kids is they are honest. However sometimes they are a little too honest - just ask this dad.
"My Father's Day present from my oldest, who always keeps it real," said dad Noah Zimmerman when sharing his child's creation on Twitter.
The hand-drawn picture shows the child holding hands with their mother with the caption, "My Hero is Mommy".
Meanwhile, the dad is depicted in the far right corner with a rectangle body, circle head and two big eyes.
"Kids are mean humans," said one sympathetic commenter.
Thankfully the dad doesn't seem to have been too offended by the drawing - quickly uploading the less than complementary depiction as his Twitter profile picture.
Receiving a handmade gift from your kids is pretty special - special in many ways.
One dad wasn't too sure how to receive the Father's Day present he was given by his son for the special day celebrated on June 19 in the UK.
The personalised piece depicted him in a very compromising position.
Posted to the Family Lowdown Tips and Ideas Facebook Page, mum Fiona shared a photo of a keyring her four-year-old made for his dad while at daycare.
Asked by teachers to draw something nice on the blank keychain, the toddler went a little too personal with his artwork - drawing his dad naked.
When mum Fiona was handed the keyring by the teacher who was "laughing her head off", she was a little confused at first.
The hilarious encounter went like this:
Teacher: "Harry, show mummy your key ring you've made daddy for Father's Day"
Me thinking: "Oh my goodness what is that"
Harry: "It's naked daddy"
Me thinking: "They must think we're naturists"
Harry: why have you drawn daddy naked? he DOESNT walk around naked!? Harry: "He's in the bath, he's naked in the bath"
Sharing it to the page she outlines for Facebook users the small details her attentive son included in the drawing including his dad's 'boobies' and 'manhood'.
The hilarious keychain was praised by people online. "This is absolutely fab!!! I am so impressed," one commented on the post.
Another said, "That's treasure right there."
Aussie teacher Lesley Sawtell shared a hilarious photo on Facebook of a note one of her young students wrote about their little sister for a class exercise.
While the youngster's writing starts out strong, the ending proves a little unfortunate.
The note begins with a slightly lofty tone: "My little sister, she is always in truble all the time. She always wants to come where I go."
But then, the scribe turns sweet.
"She is still my baby girl. I love her very much. Sometimes she hats me, sometimes, but I stile love her."
And then it ends: "She is very nice and c***."
While the writer's spelling mistakes early in the piece were easy to forgive, it was the error in the last word that caused her teacher's raised eyebrows and laughter.
Unfortunately, a rogue 'n' made itself present in the word 'cute', while the e somehow disappeared. You get the gist of what was left.
Either way, the note has brought plenty of laughs, with the teacher saying she "had to keep it" because it was just too good.
"Hysterical!" one person commented.
Kids can be very creative when it comes to their artistic efforts - so when you ask them to draw something specific, the result is often nothing like you expected.
A prime example is this hilarious drawing one mum has shared online.
Posting to the Family Lowdown Tips and Ideas Facebook Group, Sarah explained in the caption: "My son had to draw pictures of what myself and Daddy do for a living. Have deliberately left out what he wrote about us, as I want you all to have a guess at what our jobs are."
The boy drew a person laying on the floor while his mum stood on top of them, in a very questionable position, waving something in the air.
People took to the image to submit their guesses about what occupation the boy was trying to show.
While some were on the more naughty side, others thought more literally.
"Stay at home parent that looks dead, being jumped on by children," one person commented.
Another hit the nail on the head guessing. "Beauty therapist doing waxing and it hurts."
Mum Sarah works as a Beauty Therapist in the UK - and it looks like her son accompanied her to work during a particularly painful waxing treatment once or twice.
Families around the UK and the Commonwealth spent the weekend celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee - and kids are getting involved in the festivities too.
Debbie Arnott's five-year-old daughter was so excited by the occasion that she drew this innocent picture of herself handing the Queen a bunch of flowers.
And while there isn't anything odd in the image itself, a spelling mistake on the drawing's caption has turned it into a hilarious read.
Trying to describe the Queen's outfit as 'a red dress and two blue tights' the misspelling of 'tights' to give it a very different meaning.
The picture was met with lots of laughs when it was posted to the Family Lowdown Tips and Ideas Facebook page.
"The Queen would absolutely love to see this, her sense of humour is apparently wicked," one person commented.
A mum has revealed a hilariously unfortunate drawing her daughter gifted her.
"Can you guess what it is?" the mum joked on Instagram, sharing a photo of the drawing with a cryptic message to the side of it.
"In all seriousness, [my daughter] amazes me every day with all she achieves (She also destroys me)," she added.
In the comments, followers had a guess for what the child had been trying to capture in her work.
"Scissors," one person commented, adding, "it's really clear to me! It even says scissors she's written it on the right."
A closer look shows the child has in fact labelled her drawing writing the word 'scissors' and 'sharp' ¨C although her letter 's' is drawn backwards.
The mum confirmed the two words, commenting: "Jokes aside, I'm so proud of everything she's achieving."
Many kids have a favourite book. The one they pull out from their shelf every night and ask their parents to read before bed.
For one little boy, this book is NOT Charlotte's Web.
Author, and dad to nine-year-old Lucas, Michael Jimenez hilariously tweeted out what he calls his son's "first book review".
After reading through the classic children's novel by EB White, Lucas wasn't impressed, making it clear by writing, "Depressing. Don't read" on the title page as a warning to other kids.
Jimanez, who has written two books of his own, says his son's dislike for the novel is "probably why he is reading more manga now".
The dad's tweet has been seen by thousands, and was shared recently on Instagram via Upworthy, who found the review hilarious and pretty accurate. "Even EB White would have to admit, she omitted needless words," one person wrote.
Another said: "Sounds like he has a career. Don't let him read Bambi."
When you're contacted by your child's school you can only hope that it is just an administration notification and nothing to do with their behaviour.
For one mum in the US, the text message she received from her daughter Ruby's school teacher one morning however was in reference to something a little bit more embarrassing.
Mum Brinn Williams, from Nebraska, said she was mortified when she was informed her daughter gifted her teacher Miss Becca a card that had an adults-only message on it.
"Are you missing a card?" the teacher asked the mum who immediately realised she may have made a big mistake.
The night before Ruby asked her mum if she could play around with some of her stationary in her office. In doing so she pulled out a card and, with the sweetest of intentions, put together a message inside so she could gift it to her favourite teacher the next day.
Williams didn't get a chance to see what card her daughter had chosen until it was too late.
"A best friend you can have sex with," the front read. "How great is that," it continued on the inside.
The humorous card was purchased by the mum to be gifted to her husband Josh who was also left embarrassed by the blunder.
"She can't read, but my guess is that she saw a card with a lot of blank area to draw her picture," Williams told Today Parenting confirming she has now set up a separate stationary station for Ruby at home to avoid it happening again.
One kid thought long and hard about the perfect Mother's Day present - and their teacher shared the hilarious results online.
The Instagram post, from thekindnessclassroom account, shows a page reading: "My mum deserves the world. If I could buy her anything, I would buy her..."
The child in question simply wrote "beer", but that's not the embarrassing bit. Let's just say the drawing accompany the present suggestion does not really look like a bottle of beer - but it does look like something else.
"Phallic beer," one commenter wrote.
"Oh wow.. what a lucky mum!!" said another.
