Christmas Jokes to Make Grandchildren Giggle

by grammiestewart

A child’s laugh could simply be one of the most beautiful sounds in the world.


Kids love jokes and any excuse to laugh.

They delight when their belly shakes like a bowl full of jelly!


When I taught Grade 3, I often found my students telling jokes like this …

Q: Why did the men go across the ocean in their boat?                     

A: To play basketball!


I would have to explain that jokes are funny because they are usually “a play on words” with a double meaning, or a humorous use of words. It can be a story with a funny punchline. Then we would share lots of jokes in order for them to get the importance of how jokes play with words.


Christmas is a great time to share jokes and help your grandchildren understand how jokes work (and I have found some kids naturally pick up on this faster than others). Who doesn’t enjoy a cheesy joke that involves Santa, elves, snowmen or reindeer? No kid that I know of …


So, have a great time giggling together as you share these Christmas jokes for grandchildren over some hot chocolate and a snuggle!
