April is National Humor Month, so it's time to LOL* as we discover the funniest jokes on the Internet. And lest you feel like you're wasting your time, remember, according to many studies, laughter is good for you. What better way to celebrate World Health Day (April 7) than by giving yourself the gift of healing laughter!
Jokes usually don't need instructions (listen, and then laugh or groan as appropriate) but the Az Kids Net Jokes are interactive and require your participation by clicking or hovering your mouse. Each joke section of Az Kids Net is formatted a little differently, so you'll need to read the directions. For example, the Knock Knock jokes require you to mouse over (but not click) on "Who's there?" and then again on "Answer," while Silly States needs a mouse click on the "Answer" button. All this clicking and mousing adds up to great fun, so don't miss it.
OWLKids of Canada serves up riddles, knock-knock jokes and moaners in a fun format that doesn't ruin the punch line. "Why is an egg like a promise?" To find out you'll need to click on the "???" button. After the jokes, explore the rest of the site, which features puzzles and articles from the publishers of three children's magazines: Chirp (for three to six year olds,) ChickaDEE (for kids six to nine,) and OWL (for nine and up).
