Child laughing

Jokes for kids: 50 of the best from the Inner West Mums community

Jokes to make a five-year-old laugh. It was the post we needed in the Inner West Mums Facebook Group this month. Lockdown. School holidays. Rain. We obviously all needed a chuckle. Or should we say a guffaw! There were so many excellent jokes – the thread was still active one week on! Here are 50 of our favourites. Read them and we dare you not to smile. And bookmark this for the next time the kids in your life ask for a joke – there’s some rippers below.

Thank you to the original poster and all the commenters. And the funny people from whom these jokes originated.
