Here are some clean, green, and hilarious jokes for your young ones.

Julia Barnes for Fatherly

St. Patrick’s Day is always a bonkers insane holiday for kids, full of weird jokes. It’s not a normal day. But, as everyone experiences a huge shift in the definition of “normal,” there’s no reason you have to cancel St. Patrick’s Day for your family.

In fact, you don’t need to even run out to the store and hoard green-colored food dye to get into the spirit. Because leprechauns are mostly invisible, we can talk about them and joke about them endlessly, all without having to lift a finger. This is what the leprechauns would want you to do. Tell jokes. But, what are the best St. Patrick’s Day jokes for kids?

In the spirit of the leprechauns — and not going completely insane — we’ve rounded up 20 family-friendly and clean St. Patrick’s Day jokes that are bound to make your kids laugh. Get ready to pinch your kids and deal out some groan-worthy St. Patrick’s Day jokes. Here’s the best (and worst) we could come up with.
