Jokes for Kids

Kids’ Jokes

In honor of April’s appointment as National Humor Month, today’s topic is clean, funny jokes. National Humor Month was founded in 1976 by author Larry Wilde, who chose April because of its frequently bleak weather, the fact that it begins with April Fool’s Day, and to counteract the stress of taxes being due on the April 15. Have a joke of your own to share? Jokes By Kids would love to read it.

101 Kidz: Jokes3 stars

"What do you get if you cross a spider and an elephant? I'm not sure, but if you see one walking across the ceiling then run before it collapses!" With an emphasis on animal jokes, there are pages and pages of kid-friendly jokes and riddles at 101 Kidz. Visit for jokes about chickens, dinosaurs, elephants, cats, insects, spiders and flies. A few of these animals have their categories listed on the main joke page. For the rest of the animals, you will need to page through the Animal Jokes section, looking for the sub-categories.

Aha Jokes: Kids Jokes4 stars

"What do you call an ant who skips school? A truant!" " Why were the early days of history called the dark ages? Because there were so many knights!" The Aha kids jokes are divided into Animal Jokes, Doctor Jokes, Knock Knock, Scary Jokes, School Jokes and Silly Jokes. The navigation isn't fancy, but if you follow the green arrows, you'll scroll through the joke collections page by page.

AzKidsNet: Knock Knock Jokes!5 stars

As good comedians know, how a joke is presented is just as important as the joke itself. I like the presentation at AzKidsNet because the punchline is hidden until you make it appear. On the Knock Knock Jokes pages, simply hover over "Who's There?" to see the question, and then move over to "Answer" to see the punchline. The other joke pages, such as Elephant Jokes, Riddles and Brainteasers, use a variety of different (but easy to use) click and hover techniques to keep the answers hidden until you are ready for them.

Ducksters: Jokes: You Quack Me Up!4 stars

Navigation at Ducksters is simple, but it works. The jokes and riddles are divided into twenty-nine categories and subcategories. Some of the more unusual ones are Tree Jokes, Occupation Jokes and Geography Jokes. "What has five eyes and is lying on the water? The Mississippi River!" "Where do pianists go for vacation? Florida Keys!" "What rock group has four men that don't sing? Mount Rushmore!"

Reader's Digest: Kids Jokes5 stars

"What's the difference between a cat and a comma? A cat has claws at the end of paws. A comma is a pause at the end of a clause." Kids jokes are just one of the Reader Digest joke categories. Others include Knock-Knock Jokes, Corny Jokes, Riddles, and Cartoons. You can also submit your own joke. Look for the link in the drop-down Jokes menu near the top of any page. If your joke is selected for the print magazine, you'll be paid $100!
