Our kids love tongue twisters and as they often lead to tripping over words, funny phrases and always gales of laughter, this is a great opportunity to share my top 10!
I also think they are good to see which sounds children (or foreign language learners) struggle with or can't make or pronounce.
Tongue twisters are also used for warming up the voice before choir and are also useful for creating clear tones later!
1. Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?
2. She sells sea shells on the sea shore.
3. How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
If a woodchuck could chuck wood?
4. Girl gargoyle, guy gargoyle.
5 One-one was a race horse.
Two-two was one too.
One-one won one race.
Two-two won one too.
7. A skunk sat on a stump and thunk the stump stunk,
but the stump thunk the skunk stunk.
8. Betty Botter had some butter,
"But," she said, "this butter's bitter.
If I bake this bitter butter,
it would make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter--
that would make my batter better."
9. A tooter who taught on the flute
Tried to tutor two tooters to toot
Said the two to the tutor
Is it harder to toot or
To tutor two tutors to toot?
10. Round and round the rugged rock
the ragged rascal ran.
