Jump To Specific Knock Knock Jokes

It was a holiday for kids. All the friends were going out to play when it began raining heavily. Just when they were resenting that their holiday is a damp squib, somebody knocked on the door. It was one more friend of my children wanting to join the gang of bored boys. “Who is that?” I asked and thus began the game of funny knock knock jokes for kids.
Knock knock jokes can keep both adults and children engrossed for hours together. They also keep you alert and swift in your answers. Pun, of course, is a must in them! MomJunction shares with you several such knock knock jokes which you can use to beat the boredom out of your kids.

What Are Knock Knock Jokes?

A knock-knock joke is a simple “call and response” activity involving two people. It is an interactive activity with lots of ‘pun’. The jokes are not educational but they make you think.

The first knock-knock joke, in its standard form, was published in a newspaper in the 1930s, although a variant of the format was introduced as a children’s game in 1929. A knock-knock joke usually has five lines, and goes like this:

Punster: Knock, knock!
Recipient: Who’s there?
Punster: One or two-word (variable) response, which sometimes can be a name
Recipient: Repetition of the reply followed by the word ‘who’.
Punster: The punch line, which involves misuse of the word for ‘pun’.

There are a few jokes that are lengthier than this, but equally funny. There are thousands of knock-knock jokes you can choose from for your kids. You can also buy a knock knock joke book for more ideas. Once your child gets a hang of these jokes, you can encourage them to come up with their own jokes.

Here’s a round-up of some of the kid-friendly knock-knock jokes for you. Next time your kid says “tell me a knock knock joke,” you’ll be ready!
