Joke Matching

Find silly kids’ jokes on Yahooligans or other places online. Write the question and punch line down on separate slips of paper. Mix them up and have each kid draw one. Next they have to find their partner, i.e., the kid with the other half of their joke (either the question or the punchline). After the kids have all paired off, have the partners stand up and read their joke. Sometimes it’s pretty funny if the punchlines are not matched to the correct joke! This game can be used as a creative way to get a group into partners as a way to prepare for another game, such as a “getting to know you” exercise.
