I have decided to make an advent calendar for the classroom, and have thought long and hard as to what I can put in each pocket. I have come up with jokes.
Here is the tricky part - I need 25!

So please can you share any clean but cheesy Christmassy jokes that you think 5/6 year olds would like!

Many thanks

Don't do it to yourself!!! Kids that age do NOT get jokes, you will spend all day trying to explain them and then have to listen to their DIRE attempts at jokes - you will need much more than wine and cake.

And what are you counting down to? They aren't going to be there Christmas morning grin ??

How about putting a small present with each childs name in a different 'box' (doubling up if necessary) Just a cheap pencil sharpener/bouncy ball/wrapped sweet?

Or a 'word' that will tell a story at the end?f

Or ... well, pretty much anything but a joke - it WILL do your head in!!

IME they find them 'hysterical' because they're 'supposed to' then they spend the rest of the day asking why it's funny and trying to make up their own jokes <shudder> Can you tell I have make plenty of 'joke' mistakes in the past grin

What goes black, white, black, white, black, white?
A penguin rolling down a hill.

What's black, white and red all over?
A penguin in a blender

Although I will agree with other posters who say SAVE YOURSELF WHILE THERE'S STILL TIME! You'll have to explain the jokes all day, all frigging month and listen to their own attempts, which will lose it's charm after about half an hour.

Why don't polar bears eat penguins?
Because they can't get the wrappers off.

Hope you are not a maths teacher
grin
You do know that you don't need 25, don't you?
You don't need them for the weekends and most schools will be breaking up about the 20th

ooo I just started a thread asking for star jokes for my ds age 6 to tell in his nativity.

can anyone on here help?

artyanklet Sat 30-Nov-13 11:45:00

No I am not a maths teacher and yes I do need 25 as we always do an extra one on the Friday and Monday. We will also do the days that we are on holiday before they break up so every child will get a turn !

I had thought about a little gift but I thought this would be fun.

Stealing these jokes for my (older kids). Meant to do this days ago!

LaTrucha Sat 30-Nov-13 13:39:17

My 5 nearly 6 year old will find most of those hillarious.

What goes, 'Ho ho ho, BONK'?
Father Christmas laughing his head off.
