80+ Funny Winter Jokes for Kids (and Grown-Ups Too!)

Winter jokes for kids are a great way to warm up with laughter when the weather turns cold. 

When I started putting funny jokes in the lunchbox as a way to connect with my son a few years back, I had no idea how powerful these silly little jokes would be.

Each time I collected a new set of jokes or riddles (like Knock-Knock jokes, winter riddles, or math jokes), I found a new way to use them as a parenting tool.

It sounds funny to suggest that winter jokes might help you with parenting during these extra cold months… but I want you to trust me on this one. I’ve received enough emails to know that jokes come in very handy!
