82 Christmas Jokes For Kids

It’s no secret that kids love jokes, and I can guarantee that they will love these Christmas jokes for kids!

Even my 3 year old loves jokes, and she doesn’t even understand them most of the time. Sometimes she does, but she just loves the idea of jokes. She loves the reaction that she gets when she tells me one of her made up jokes. She always ends her made up jokes with “because he was a real hot head”.

It’s adorable.

She does however, understand most of the jokes on this list that I made: Hilarious Kid Jokes (Age 5)

With these Christmas jokes, I’ve got everything covered. There are Santa jokes, reindeer jokes, elf jokes, snowman jokes, snow jokes, knock knock jokes, and gingerbread man jokes. They are the perfect free Christmas activity for kids.

That is a LOT of jokes.

These jokes can keep your kids laughing all season long.
