Super Silly Lunch Box Jokes for Kids

Last year Big M broke my heart when he asked me not to leave love notes in his lunch box anymore. It’s embarrassing, I totally get it. He’s getting older but I still want to put something special in his lunch, something that lets him know I’m thinking about him.

Part of what makes parenting fun is figuring out how to connect with our kids. So I got creative and added lunch box jokes instead. They’re fun for all the kids at the lunch table; they let him know I’m thinking about him, and they aren’t the least bit embarrassing.

Since I’ve already compiled the list… I thought I’d share it with you! Read through them and then print them out. Sometimes I write the jokes on the back of a Capri Sun pouch, sometimes on a napkin, and sometimes I use the printout!

  1. I’m an elementary school secretary and oversee the morning announcements. I like the pencil jokes. Looking for more jokes to give students a chuckle on the mornings of those hideous standardized tests.

  2. I am a teacher and used your Summer Jokes for Kids for a fun assignment at the end of the school year for my reading intervention group. Each child chose a joke they illustrated on the front-side of a piece of construction paper. The back of the construction paper had the punch line of the joke written on it. We mounted the jokes on a paint-stir stick and then practiced them for reading fluency. When we were proficient with the jokes, we shared them with a couple of other classes. Then we passed out copies of the jokes to share with the kids in the class. It was a successful project. When kids are bored this summer, let them create their own joke book from some of the jokes on the site!

  3. I put jokes into my kids lunch boxes also. It is a nice way of getting them to think of you when they are at school and I know they love it. I am always looking for extra jokes or silly sayings. Nice to know others do too.

  4. This is a great site. Thank you.
    Also I may have a fun joke/riddle that my dad used to write to me. I used this in my son’s lunchbox. Ok, here goes:
    I C U U 2Y’s 4 Me!
