Anybody who spends any time with kids knows that there's nothing better than a well-timed joke. When you're waiting in line, trying to short-circuit a tantrum, looking for a way to start conversation or just want to hear the giggles, having repertoire of puns and gags comes in handy in a million different scenarios. Things get even sillier when kids start to learn to tell jokes for themselves, in which case you'd better have some for them to memorize.
These child-friendly jokes are short, easy to remember and they make sense — which is not always a given with kid jokes! And yes, they will probably make other adults roll their eyes the next time your child decides to try out her stand-up routine for all of the relatives. (They’re not quite to the level of dad jokes, but they’re getting there.) Plus, we found more than 100 of them, so you can keep returning to this list every time the material gets stale. And, even though there are a ton of quips on this list, orange you glad we didn’t include that tired old banana knock-knock joke?
