I started looking around for jokes to tell my grandson and in addition to finding several good joke books, I started hearing some on my local radio station! They had little kids call in and tell their jokes! I found out that Jokes don't have to be outrageously funny in order for kids to enjoy them.

I started writing down the jokes for kids I heard on the radio and also made a note anytime I read a joke in a magazine that I thought was pretty funny. That way, whenever I needed a new joke on had, I had a few!

The easiest jokes learn are knock, knock jokes or short basic jokes. Here are a few kids jokes I heard just listening to the radio:
