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 wellbeing! On the 1st of July, which is observed as 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

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. Smelled a “Brose”
Jay once came in with a swollen nose.
“What happened?” asked Anita.

“There’s no “b” in rose,” she said.
“There was one in there,” he replied.
