Hilarious Jokes for 6 Year Old

I've found that joke books are a great way to encourage my boys to read.

My youngest son loves telling the jokes from his joke book to us and trying to make us laugh. It's also really nice to watch him laugh at his own jokes after reading them!

There are some groaners in there but there are some funny jokes as well.

A good and inexpensive stocking filler idea is a card game.

Smack It is a fun, quick game which is great for kids aged 6 to 12 years old.

Players quickly flip their cards into a central pile and battle for the pile during challenge rounds. They have to keep sharp as when a smack it card appears they have to put their hand on the pile first to claim it.

As well as fun, it's a great to reinforce number recognition and number comparison (for example, 49 is bigger than 32).
