The Best Dad Jokes Ever

“Dad Jokes” are cheesy, but that doesn’t mean kids don’t love them!  Here are the best dad jokes that only dads can pull off. 

Physical Comedy

Physical comedy is great for especially younger children.  Sometimes a little slap-stick is the perfect comedic relief!

“Got Your Nose!”  Simulate plucking the nose off of your child, and make your hand into a fist with your thumb tucked under your pointer and middle finger.  Wiggle the “nose” for some playful deceit!

Floating Finger  This one requires both hands.  With one hand, fold back your thumb at the knuckle.  With your other hand, tuck your thumb underneath your pointer and middle finger.  Line up your hands to make it look like you are removing the top of your finger!
