25 Hilarious Jokes For 5 Year Olds

Somehow I’ve managed to make it through to Day 10 of Blogtober17 with the lovely Hex Mum Plus One.  I was a bit worried about today’s prompt which was ‘jokes’ as I am not a great one for telling jokes. I tend to forget the punch line! However, Little Sir is now 5 and I swear is going to be a comic mastermind. He has the most incredible sense of comic timing and makes me laugh out loud several times a day.  He is just beginning to crack joke telling, so I thought what better for today’s prompt than the top 25 jokes for 5 year olds!
