90 Corny Jokes to Tell to Kids You Love (And Adults You Hate)

Remember: Dad jokes are funny as long as you think they are.

Julia Barnes for Fatherly

Kids love to laugh, and knowing how to make them laugh is a great tool in any parent’s arsenal, especially during stressful times. Nothing lightens the mood like the ridiculousness of a corny joke, and having a vast reservoir of funny, corny jokes for kids can help defuse tension during long days cooped up at home.

With older kids, it’s always a toss-up whether corny jokes will elicit a laugh or an eye-roll, and what works one day might be deemed uncool the next. But these corny jokes don’t have expiration dates, so you can bust them out for years to come. From animal jokes to food jokes, math jokes, and Star Wars jokes, this list has something for everyone. (Everyone who likes corny jokes, that is.) And though these 75 corny jokes might annoy your spouse (and any other adult humans in the vicinity) they’ll definitely make your kid laugh. Whatever works, right?
