If you’re the parent of a 5 year old, your child probably loves jokes. My daughter is currently obsessed with jokes, but I quickly realized that finding the perfect jokes for 5 year olds was not an easy task.
Sometimes it’s hard to find jokes that she can truly understand. She’s constantly asking Alexa to tell her a joke, but a lot of the jokes are over her head, and some are not very appropriate jokes either.
Not all jokes for kids are easy to understand, and when I looked for jokes for preschoolers, I found some really hilarious and perfect jokes for 5 year olds that kids of all ages would love.
The following are jokes that make the cut. They are simple enough for your preschooler, but they’re also some of the best kid friendly jokes that I’ve found. These children’s jokes will have the whole family laughing together.
So check out the jokes below or gather your kids and watch this video, which gives you a chance to play a little game and see who can come up with the joke’s answer first!
(Be sure to read the rest of the post, too, because not all of the jokes are in the video.)
