Jokes and children go together like bees to honey. A timely told joke can be a social outlet for children to share with friends and family. Sometimes even the shyest children come out of their shells when they hear and share jokes. It can even boost a child’s self-esteem when people laugh at their jokes. But perhaps the best thing about jokes is that they are good medicine for the soul. Laughter simply makes kids feel good! Here are some jokes that you may want to share with your kids. Hopefully, they will enjoy some enough that your kids will want to retell the jokes to their friends.
