Got a little class clown on your hands? Here are 101 funny jokes for kids of all ages.

One of the best parts of parenthood is getting to watch your child develop their own sense of humor. You get to see them work through the logic of different punchlines and discover what kinds of humor they gravitate to the most. And there's nothing better than seeing how happy they get when they make someone laugh with a funny joke.

The only problem is that your child's joke repertoire is going to be...a little limited -- which means that you're going to hear most of them over and over again. (Orange you glad, reaaaaaally, really glad, she didn't say banana?)
