We absolutely love jokes in our household and themed jokes are the best because we can integrate them in our dress up imaginative play days. On pirate day we get all decked out in our hooks, eye patches and pegs and have treasure troves worth of laughs as we try to out-do each other with jokes, puns and one-liners.

Of course anyone who tells a joke that drops like an anchor, walks the plank or becomes marooned. The funniest joke creates our new Cap’n who gets to pick dinner and usually has a head start in the treasure hunt. The kids will be thinking of jokes for days and making each other and us giggle.

Joke telling is also a great way to boost kids confidence and social skills, as well as teaching them about language and forcing them to think laterally about it. Plus you get a laugh so it’s a real parenting win when your kids are on board.

We hope you had a whale of a time with our ‘haaarrrrrrrlarious’ pirate jokes for kids. I’m guessing by now you’re totally hooked on joke telling, but if you needed more convincing, here is a great article that discusses how humor is a key to children’s development.

Humor provides an outlet for kids to discover and learn about the things that they’re interested in, or developmental tasks they’re struggling with. It’s why your 9 month old finds peekaboo hilarious, but your 6 year old would be totally bored by it.

Your 9 month old is only just beginning to understand where you go when you leave and while they mostly understand you’re behind your hands, there’s tension while they wait for you to reappear and delight when you eventually do. What your kids find funny will indicate where they’re at developmentally and where their interests lie.

Joke-telling is also a great confidence boost for kids as they discover the tension of having the attention of a room, trying to remember a punch line, and deliver it in the right way that gets a laugh.

Jokes also improve language skills and can help to teach your kids about the world. They also offer some bonding time with your kids as you try to make each other chuckle and there’s absolutely nothing better than that.
