Kid lunch jokes are an easy tradition to start and a great way to put a smile on your child’s face while they are at school. Lunch jokes let your child know you are thinking about them as well as giving them a laugh to share with their friends. 

kid lunch jokes

When my oldest daughter started Kindergarten I wanted a way to let her know I was thinking about her when I couldn’t be there with her. I decided to send notes in her lunchbox with a fun joke on the back.

At the time I had no idea how much she would love getting those jokes and that I would still be doing them 2 years later. My daughter has since told me that she likes getting to tell her friends the joke at lunch and sharing a laugh with them so I have continued this tradition.

This past year I decided to start saving and typing up all the jokes I send so that I can use them with my younger two daughters, one of which will be starting Kindergarten in the fall.

I created and am sharing with you this kid lunch jokes printable with over 240 jokes. It will save you the time of looking up jokes each morning to send with your child! 

These kid lunch jokes range from food and animal jokes to space jokes and more! Just cut these hilarious lunch jokes out and send them in their lunchbox. They are sure to love them!

This post is all about kid lunch jokes to send in your child’s lunchbox.
