Is there anything sweeter than the sound of kids laughing with their Dad? I love listening to my kids joke around with their father and love my memories of silliness with my own dad.
And the jokes…
Ah, the terrible, groan-worthy Dad jokes…
It seems that the worse the jokes get the more kids (and their Dads) love them.
Folded Paper Joke Teller
In honor of Father’s Day I’ve created this fun, free printable joke teller kids can fold and play with their dad.
Add it to his breakfast-in-bed tray and start Father’s Day with a round of silly joke telling. Dad will love the attention and kids love mastering the art of jokes and puns.
What is a Joke Teller (AKA Cootie Catchers or Fortune Tellers)
Joke tellers are an easy folded paper craft that kids love. You may remember folding these easy paper fortune tellers (also called cootie catchers in some parts of the United States) in elementary school.
My elementary school friends and I used to make cootie catchers with notebook paper and colored markers. The folded paper games we made were meant to be fortune tellers that would “predict” the number of children we would have, our spouses, or careers.
I’ve adapted the same fun folded paper origami design and filled them with corny Dad jokes for kids!
