Elfin Safety thinks Paige Ootabook’s jokes are so terrible she should be in ELF ISOLATION. Do you know any really funny jokes? We can make Paige Ootabook a joke generator to help her come up with some new ones.
Make: Paige Ootabook’s Joke Generator
You will need:
Two bowls, hats or jars
Pens or pencils
Step 1: Write a joke, with the first part on one bit of paper and the second part on another. If you can’t think of any jokes just write down some questions and answers like
What’s your favourite song? Jingle Bells
What’s your favourite time of year? Winter
What’s your favourite food? Brussel Sprouts
Step 2: Fold up the first part of the joke and put it in one jar (or the question) and put the punchline (or the answer) in another
Step 3: Mix them up with your hands and each member of the household takes turns at pulling out a question and an answer. Are there any really silly ones? Or ones that are funny because they don’t make sense? Which one is your favourite new joke?
Activity: Play joke pairs
Lay all the pieces of paper down on the middle of the floor or the table, face down, so that you can’t see the writing.
Take turns to pick up two pieces of paper at a time. If you get a joke that matches the first part and the punchline so that it makes sense, then you get to keep that pair.
If you get two that don’t make sense you have to put them in the middle.
When all the pairs are gone, count up who has the most joke pairs. They are the winner.
Here are some jokes to get you started:
How does a snowman get to work?
How did the bauble know that she was addicted to Christmas?
She’d been hooked on Christmas trees all her life.
What do you get when you cross a snowman with a vampire?
