What Types of Jokes Are Appropriate for Kids?

Types of jokes that are appropriate for kids include silly puns, knock-knock jokes and jokes about animals. Jokes for kids are clean, short and simple to understand.

One example of a pun that is good for kids is "What do you call a pig that knows karate? A pork chop!" Jokes for kids are often in question-and-answer format. Another question-and-answer pun is "Why do bees have sticky hair? Because they use honeycombs."

Knock-knock jokes are very popular with children. This type of joke involves a back-and-forth exchange between the person telling the joke and the one it's being told to. The person telling the joke starts by saying "knock knock" as if knocking on a door, and the other person answers the door by saying "who's there?" An example of a knock-knock joke is "Knock Knock. Who's there? Anka! Anka who? Anka the ship!"

Some jokes for kids are centered around school subjects such as geography, history, math and English. One example of a history-related joke is "Why did the pioneers cross the country in covered wagons? Because they didn't want to wait 40 years for a train!" It's good to supply children that like jokes with fresh material so they learn more and don't get bored.
