Don’t you absolutely love it when your children throw their heads back and giggle, delighted and lost in the moment? Children love to laugh and laughter loves children back – it is very good for their mental growth and well being! On July 1, International Joke Day, prepare for some rollicking family fun with hilarious jokes for children.
Depending on their age group, your children may love jokes about animals and places, their Daddy or Mommy, or people around the world. While sharing a joke with the kids, you must maintain a balance between humour and sarcasm and steer clear of anything that’s vulgar or inappropriate among family members. These five types of jokes are our top picks for rib-cracking but clean humour for the kiddos.
Funny Jokes your Kids Will Love
1. Tell a Wacky Tale
Nothing gets children as excited as a story. A funny tale gets their attention hook, line and sinker! Beware though; this little joke about muffins might get them demanding some of their own.
There are two muffins in an oven.
One muffin turns to the other muffin and says, “Gosh, it sure is hot in here.”
The other muffin looks shocked and says, “Oh my God! A talking muffin!”
2. Knock, knock, Who’s There?
This classic joke works for children of all ages though you may want to choose the complexity accordingly. The best bit is that you can write your own knocking jokes very easily. Try this one and “Moo” your way to happiness!
3. Chickens That Cross The Road
Children are fascinated by animals and delighted when they take on human-like characteristics. Get your chicken to do or say funny things like the one here and get your children super amused.
Where do tough chickens come from?
4. Number Mania
If you’re lucky enough to be mom to a maths-loving little one, jokes about numbers are your best bet. Even otherwise, a little fun with numbers might be just what the doctor ordered to get your children interested in numbers. Double whammy!
How can you make number seven an even number?
-Just take the “s” out from it!
5. Questions with Unexpected Answers
Let alone kids, we all love it when the humdrum and routine take on unexpected twists. Puns with surprise endings never fail to work and are sure to succeed with kids as well as older guests at a family gathering. The more absurd, the better.
What’s black and white, black and white, black and white?
-A penguin rolling down a hill!
Now that you’re armed with kid-friendly jokes to share with your children, get cracking already. When you’re gathered around the dinner table or have some time to relax after a meal, share a joke or two and watch your little munchkins double up with laughter!
