Kids, Jokes, and Video Chat

Have you tried telling jokes during a video chat?  With school age children this can be lots of fun. Keep them simple: Why do birds fly north in the winter? Because it’s too far to walk! Or, What is a volcano? A mountain with hiccups! I just discovered Rob Elliott’s book LAUGH OUT LOUD JOKES FOR KIDS. Elliott includes Question & Answer jokes, Animal jokes, Knock Knock jokes, Tongue Twisters and some funny questions to think about.

In the Knock Knock jokes section there are jokes with children’s names. If the child that you video chat with is named Anna, Samantha, Lee, Cameron, or many others, there is a Knock Knock joke for that name – Wow!! If you didn’t find the name of your child or grandchild the book will give you ideas so you can make up your own personalized Knock Knock joke.
Have fun!
