Kids love a good joke and are quick to reward adult silliness with gratifying laughter. But coming up with funny kids’ jokes on the spot is tough. Even the most dad joke proficient among us can have trouble thinking of puns and funny dad jokes in the moment. If you love silly jokes and your kid loves (or tolerates) hearing them, what you need is an arsenal of corny kids’ jokes for every occasion.
The secret to the best kids’ jokes is a deep commitment to ridiculousness. Good jokes for kids celebrate and revel in silliness over intelligence. They’re not afraid to get corny or rely on a pun that’s a bit of a stretch. The best kids’ jokes are light-hearted and fun but draw in adults with their clever puns. A funny kid joke is like ’60s Batman with Adam West: BIFF! POW! PUN! They’re good, clean crowd-pleasers. These are 65 hilarious jokes that kids will love and adults will love groaning at.
