Halloween Jokes for Kids
Before I just lay out all that comic gold, let’s talk about what makes a joke funny. And while this can vary from person to person, Halloween humor requires just a few things to fall into place as well.

Halloween humor and traditions
One thing is for certain…Halloween offers so many chances to have a true blast and fun. And if you’re one of those adults that like to dress up and get in on the action, that’s awesome. I’m right there with you!
Who is the person that decided that after a certain age, trick-or-treating was for younger kids…and while there is a fine line to what that age is, I can assure you that I’m never going to stop trick-of-treating, ever.
Now…I’ll is honest. My trick-or-treating is limited to whatever comes home in the basket of my child..but I can assure you that I get in my good share of Reeses and Tootsie Rolls. (and if I can wrangle a snicker or two, I’m down!)
But this year, I started thinking more about Halloween traditions as well. Here are a few that I thought of that might be something that works well with you and your family, too!
Create costumes together as a family
Why join in on the chaos of shopping for a Halloween costume at the store when you can stay at home and make them yourself? Homemade costumes are way cooler because that means that they’re 100% unique.
How many times can you recall growing up that you see something else trick-or-treating in the same store bought costume as you? Pretty horrible, right?
This year, change that. Make it a new tradition in your home that you and your kids make your costumes, homemade. Not only does this ensure that you’ll have a unique and fun costume, but it’s a great way to bond as well. Hours of conversation and snacks can easily happen when you’re sitting around the table crafting.
Hand out treats to the adults in your neighborhood as well
Even though we touched base earlier about adults not being able to trick-or-treat, there is one thing that you can do that is certain to give all the adults that are taking their kids around to houses a big smile on their face.
Sit up a cooler and while you’re handing out the candy to the kids, hand out an “adult beverage” to the parents. Total win/win, right?
I’ve seen this done in other neighborhoods before and it’s always a big hit. And as long as you’re being careful and making certain that you’re only handing it out to parents that are walking around or ones that you know live in the neighborhood so there is no drinking or driving, it’s a super fun tradition to get started.
Dare I say that your house just might be the hit of the neighborhood?
One of the best parts about coming home after a night of trick-or-tracking is dumping out all the candy on the floor and ripping through it to see what candy you’re wanting to trade.
This tradition needs to happen every single time. You’ll be amazed at what your kids don’t like and what you do..and with a little bit of trading and negotiation, you just might score a giant pile of Milk Duds (or whatever else you love) with very little effort.
Drop off and donate
As you’re staring at the giant pile of candy sitting on your living room floor, you’re probably wondering just how much candy one household needs. (beware – if you ask your kids, they’re going to tell you all of it!)
There is a new trend that is becoming quite popular and picking up steam and that trend is keeping a small bit of your Halloween candy and dropping off and donating the rest.
This can be done at numerous places so you’ll just have to ask around and search in your town to see exactly what your options are. Natural grocery stores are great places to check and some of them do something a little extra as well.
For every pound of candy that you bring in and donate, they’ll switch out for a pound of fruit for free. How cool is that?!
And if you’re wondering where that donated candy goes, that can vary as well. A lot of places will box it up and send it overseas to troops as a nice gift and surprise for them.
If you find that you don’t have any options in your town to drop off and donate, consider loading up some and taking it to your workplace to share as well. You’ll be amazed at how quickly it will disappear once you place a giant pile of it in the middle of the breakroom table.
We’ve done this in our neighborhood and it’s quite cool. What happens is that a bunch of houses get together and create different fun Halloween-themed station for trick-or-treaters to visit.
I’ve seen apple cider stations, weenie roast stations, and homemade s’mores. Each is well-lit and have it to where kid and parents can walk right up and grab a quick bite to eat. You can even make some delicious Halloween Treats to set out!
No candy until a joke is told
One other fun tradition that I’ve seen happen is entire neighborhoods will come together and set it up so that trick-or-treaters have to tell a riddle or a joke before they get a piece of candy.
Not only does this keep the process super exciting and humorous but it also makes the kiddos work just a little bit for that Halloween candy as well. Instead of walking up to the door and just getting candy handed right to them, the kids will have to tell a joke or riddle first.
See how fun it can be to bring humor and traditions together on Halloween?!
Where to find funny Halloween jokes
Halloween jokes don’t just fall out of thin air, right? They’ve got to be created by someone. I’m often asked by people where I get my Halloween jokes from and honestly, it comes down to just a few great sources.
First off, kids are a great place to get funny jokes from. Seriously, they make up the best jokes. Sit down and talk to them and see what comes out of their mouth.
Somehow, kids can make up jokes in a matter of seconds. And more times than not, they’re quite funny!
After that, I turn to my favorites…the internet and books. Head down to the local library and check out some Halloween joke books. There are so many there that you won’t have any problem finding them. Then, once you read a joke that you like, memorize it or take a picture with your phone camera to remember it for later.
Find Halloween Jokes on Halloween Candy!
Did I mention that Laffy Taffy candies have some really funny jokes for kids as well? I have no shame in admitting that at all!
If your child happens to get any Laffy Taffy’s this Halloween, keep the wrappers and jokes and work on reciting them until you get that delivery perfect.
Once you start to hear Halloween jokes that you like, you’ll start to remember them with ease. This Halloween is the time to get your Halloween joke game in order.
Do a bit of research, talk to your child to get ideas and recite the jokes that you know to see if they get any laughs. (eye rolls count, too!) And along with the funny Halloween jokes, work on creating a few awesome Halloween traditions as well. If jokes aren’t much of your thing, maybe spread some positive affirmations for kids this Halloween?
The more that you can do to create a fun atmosphere and ambiance surrounding the Halloween holiday, the more that everyone in your house will look forward to it every single year!
