100 Hilarious Jokes for Kids


SHARE THE LOVE

There’s something about corny jokes for kids that make kids light up with excitement and giddiness. They love making people laugh, but it’s really more than that. Joke-telling builds their self-esteem as they perform. It helps them grow in their understanding of wit, timing, and language. And they learn that they can be the one to bring joy to the group. That’s the good part. The bad part is that sometimes moms and dads have to fake it ’til the kids make it, or until they run out of jokes.

Thanks to iMOM’s team of stand-up comics, the jokes for kids aren’t running out any time soon (you’re welcome)! Your kids can put on a stand-up routine at each holiday, master the art of the knock-knock, and have everyone scratching their heads at ridiculous riddles. You can even create a joke jar with the printable below. Cut out the jokes and when your family needs a zinger, just pull one from the jar. And hey, you never know. You might even find yourself in a full-on belly laugh, so pull up a chair and let the jokes begin!
