Kinder mini treats have asked us to help the find Britain's best children's jokes. The jokes should be suitable for children aged under 11 (nothing too rude please wink) and we're dividing them into three categories, knock knock, animal and teacher/parent jokes - hope that gives everyone enough leeway grin.

Once we've collected the jokes, Kinder will be whittling them down to the top 5 in each category and then we'll be asking you to ask your child/ren to vote for their favourite (with another £150 up for grabs then).

Everyone who sends in a joke (ideally one in each category) will be entered into a prize draw to win £150 of vouchers for a store of your choice.

You can send in your jokes here

Thanks and good luck.

What counts a too rude? All my kids love one particular joke and they're all under 11...

I'll give it a try <heh heh heh>

Bugger, they have to be in categories.

Oh well, I'll just post it here.

3 kids go to the park. There they meet a fairy who says 'if you shout whatever you want to eat as you go down the slide, you'll land in a big pile of it at the bottom'

First kid shouts 'ICE CREAM' and whumpf! lands in a giant bowl of strawberry ice cream

Second kid shouts 'Chocolate!' and lands on a big mountain of chocolate

Third kid forgets, and slides down going 'Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee'...

DS1 [10] likes to add a rider to this also.

Fourth kid comes along, see the icecream etc and decides to have a go. As he's going down the slide, he sees kid 3 at the bottom swimming in a pile of wee. 'Oh poo!' he shouts...

'Scuse my stupidity - what's a teacher/parent joke? One contributed by a teacher or paretn? Or one about teachers or parents? Must have been a missing chapter in my Puffin Crack-a-Joke book...

Housemum Mon 08-Jun-09 18:09:51

What's the last category supposed to be - about teachers/parents or by teachers/parents?

PavlovtheCat Mon 08-Jun-09 18:35:19

So, where do you put the joke which has had me in stitches more times than any other I can recall but which is vegetation based? Its clearly not an animal, but it cannot be left out. It would be wrong! So, I shall await a reply grin

My kids like it when their Grandad always asks in restaurants for tigers balls on toast...then when the waiter says they dont have it he asks if they have run out of bread...grin

Why do birds fly south for the winter?

Because it's too far to walk

Greensleeves Mon 08-Jun-09 19:38:18

A man lives on the tenth floor of a tower block and every day he takes the lift down to the bottom to go to work. When he comes home he takes the lift to the fifth floor and then walks the rest of the way. Why?

Because he's not tall enough to reach the number 10 button

Sorry, they're awful, but ds1 thinks they're funny
