Remember when you were a kid and tried different tongue twisters with your friends? I have noticed that kids today don’t do tongue twisters like we used to (let alone know what a tongue twister even is), so I compiled this list of 50 whacky tongue twisters that will make your grandkids laugh! (By the way, tongue twisters are just as fun when you are a grandma as they were when you were a kid.)

Have fun, and let me know how you do!
