Does anyone know any jokes suitable for a 7 year old and a 4 year old.

Look on line for Christmas cracker jokes. I think they would appeal to this age group, the sillier the better. The 4 year old might not always 'get' them though.
For example: Q. What do you call a snowman in the summer?
A. A puddle.

Thks shysal. I like the snowman joke - they will both get that one. I heard one on Neighbours which they might understand, although it would need some explanation about the weather.

In Australia they call Frosty the Snowman - Melty the Snowman.

A classic that is indelibly etched in my brain from those days:

"What's round, green and hairy and goes up and down?"

A gooseberry in a lift.

And all related jokes of that ilk.

(In fact, I remember my father dissolving in uncontrollable fits at that gooseberry one. It might have been the way an 8-year-old told it)
