The funniest Christmas jokes for kids

by Lorna White |

Kids love nothing more than making us grown-ups giggle, and that’s why they’ll love telling these funny and festive Christmas jokes to the whole family at this time of the year. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite kid-friendly Christmas jokes that’ll have you laughing your new socks off on Christmas day.

Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without some corny cracker jokes around the dinner table after consuming far too much turkey! Everyone knows a terrible cracker joke and although we might think they’re awful, they’re bound to tickle our tots, even if they don’t fully understand the punchline.

Whether you’re making your own crackers or you want to be sure all the jokes are clean and appropriate, it’s good to have some Christmas jokes up your festive jumper sleeve to keep the kids entertained during a Christmas party.

Not only is seeing your little one tell jokes extremely adorable, it’s also good for their intellectual development and their imagination too, particularly around the 12-18 month mark. It’s at this time you might notice that they’re copying your jokes or jokes that they hear on TV so they’re guaranteed to love these jokes.
