25 Jokes For Kids That Will Make You LOL, Too

By now, the novelty of being out of school has probably worn off on your kids and they are starting to miss their friends, the freedom of hanging out at the playground and even….school. That’s why they probably need a good laugh to get them out of their funk. And what better time to keep some good jokes for kids in your back pocket than right before April Fool’s Day.

Jokes for kids are a big thing in our house. See, when I was little, I couldn’t get enough of my Dad’s corny kid jokes. I would spend hours practicing his silly jokes in my room, then attempt to wow my friends on the playground, invariably screwing up the punchline. It ain’t easy being cheesy!


Now that I’m a mom, I love cracking my family up with funny kid jokes. Sometimes they go over my 6-year-old’s head, but there is nothing better than that a-ha moment when she finally gets it. And then forget about having a normal conversation for a while; my girl needs to do her stand-up routine.

The best funny jokes for kids are easy to remember, bursting with puns, and totally G-rated, though a little bathroom humor never hurt anyone. So enjoy this list of funny kid jokes with your budding Sarah Silvermans and Kevin Harts.
