There are three different kinds of tongue twisters.

     1. When the 1st letter of each word is the same.
     2. Sometimes two or more words are just hard to say.
     3. Rhyming.

          These are really fun to use at a party.  I typed them all out & cut them in individual strips.  Then I folded them up & stuck them inside of balloons before we blew them up.  After the party got going, we had everyone pick a balloon.  We took turns popping the balloons & everyone had to say the tongue twister that they found inside their balloon.  What a riot!

A tree toad loved a she-toad
who lived up in a tree.
He was a two-toed tree toad,
but a three-toed toad was she.

the three-toed tree toad's heart.
For the two-toed tree toad loved the ground
that the three-toed tree toad trod.
But the two-toed tree toad tried in vain.
He couldn't please her whim.
From her tree toad bower,
with her three-toed power,
the she-toad vetoed him.

But a bit of better butter-

better than her bitter butter,
and she baked it in her batter
and the batter was not bitter.
So, 'twas better Betty Botter
bought a bit of better butter.
