A good sense of humour is a really important part of childhood development. Give your toddler a giggle with the very best, easy knock knock jokes for toddlers that are kid-friendly and actually funny.
Does your toddler laugh at the most bizarre things? Like if you change the words of their fave bedtime story. Or if you pretend to sneeze out peas? You can help them develop their sense of humour with this collection of the very best toddler knock knock jokes that are actually funny.
Fun and laughter are an important part of childhood and growing up.
But did you know that laughing at jokes, and telling jokes or trying to be funny, are an integral part of childhood development?
Susan Miller, professor of early childhood education, says that as toddlers become more sociable, they “enjoy sharing their sense of humour with friendly adults.”
And that preschoolers use humour to “laugh off genuine fears they may have.”
Developing a sense of humour enables children to build their confidence, become more resilient and make sense of the world around them.
It’s during toddlerhood that children actively and consciously start trying to make their parents laugh.
They will do silly things to get a reaction, like putting their coat on back to front and then laughing uncontrollably.
Toddlers and preschoolers will also make funny noises, purposefully mix up words and use objects incorrectly, as well as find potty humour irresistibly hilarious.
And we as parents should absolutely encourage this behaviour.
Research shows that a well developed sense of humour has emotional, social and health benefits.
So, with this in mind, I’ve put together a collection of the very best, funny toddler knock knock jokes for you to share with your child.
These have all been road-tested by my girls, GinGin and Roo, who said these are the best children’s knock knock jokes!
