Not much is certain in life, but we know one thing for sure: You're never too old to laugh. That means you're definitely never too young, either—and nobody loves jokes as much as kids do. Whether you have a silly toddler, a goofy 2nd grader, or a quirky teen, there's something about one-liners and knock-knock jokes that kids can't get enough of.

Unfortunately for you (aka their audience), most kids have a limited supply of gags. If you want to avoid hearing the same comic routine over and over again, you've come to the right place. This list of the best jokes for kids will have everyone–young and old–laughing the day away.

These funny jokes are short, simple, and easy to remember. We've even broken them down into categories, so your animal-obsessed kindergartener and your food-loving middle schooler can memorize the quips that resonate most with them. Since these are kid-friendly jokes, they might earn a few groans from the adults in the room when your child practices their stand-up routine at a party—but shucks, a little corny humor never hurt anybody!

Whenever your little one's material starts to get stale, revisit this list of funny kids' jokes and teach them a few more fresh funnies. You'll be glad you did!
