What’s better than a good joke to get you feeling festive? Children's education experts agree that sharing jokes is an excellent way to develop kids' language skills. Kids don’t care about that; they just want to laugh! (And for the grown-ups in the house, there's nothing like a silly joke to ease holiday tension!)
Get ready for autumn fun with these Thanksgiving jokes collected from around the web. I didn’t make them up, but I do guarantee they're all G-Rated and oozing corniness. In other words: just right for kids!
