best jokes for kids

I never thought I would say this, but I am becoming an expert in the “jokes for kids” department. Thanks to my five year old son, I spend a surprising amount of time searching for new jokes, and then telling them back and forth with the kids. My three year old never repeats them back the correct way, which makes them even funnier. The fact that my son loves jokes so much and I am constantly having to search for them inspired me to just make my own darn list already. But of course, it has to be the ultimate list of the best jokes for kids. So, here you go! (The first two are the current favorites in my house.)

Update: Kai just turned six. Lately he has been really into birds. He has always loved all animals, but birds are the latest obsession. He wanted a real parrot for his birthday, but that’s never going to happen. Not only can I not keep any more things alive right now, but I’m afraid of birds. To the point, I told him this FurReal pet is the closest thing to a real bird he’s going to get while he’s living with me. So why is this related to a list of jokes? Well, Squakers (Kai named him, of course) tells jokes. And they are really good ones. I’ll list a few below. So if you have a kid like mine who loves animals and jokes, this is the perfect gift for them.
