I confess I’ve been laughing and groaning away as I put this collection of jokes for tweens together. Jokes are fun for everyone but tweens especially LOVE jokes because not only do they find them hilarious, they also know they will illicit a groan from adults. So satisfying.
If you’ve got a tween who loves pulling out a clever joke, this list of jokes for tweens is for them. Jokes that are so boom-tish they will want to tell you them over and over again. I make no apologies for that – sitting through kids’ jokes you’ve heard countless times is all part of parenting a tween, or two, or three.
This one is good too: Mind-bending lateral thinking puzzles for kids
The trick will be to stop older siblings from butting in with the punchline. There is no sadder face than that of a tween robbed of a punchline. Shhhhh, just pretend you’ve never, ever heard any of these pearlers before.
