Christmas is a magical time for children and with that in mind we’ve compiled some of our favourite children-friendly Christmas jokes.
The jokes are in question and answer format to help with some interaction with your children. Some are clever, some are silly but they’re likely to get your kids giggling or groaning…with a bit of luck, they might start creating their own jokes.
PS The fact that they’re children’s jokes doesn’t mean adults can’t enjoy them too – feel free to smile, laugh at loud or occasionally groan, as appropriate.
