Everyone loves a few good dad jokes. Let’s be honest, they always provide a good chuckle and dads are GR8 at making us laugh. It’s one of our favorite things about them. Whether it’s sitting around the dinner table or at a family BBQ, those ba-da-bing lines always bring a smile to your face. When you’re at home with the kids, brightening up the day is essential.

Even when you think they’re corny, and the teens may roll their eyes, deep down we all love these jokes. If you’re in your younger years right now you may even find yourself telling these beloved jokes as you get older. And if you have kids of your own, try telling these dad jokes at your next gathering.

All these jokes have a summer theme, so no matter what activity you have planned this season, we have a joke for you. Play along with us as we provide the questions first–invite your kids and see if they can guess the answer before turning to the next slide!

1 of

For Your Trip to the Beach

A GR8 joke to tell when you're on your way to have some fun in the sun, build sand castles, and ride the waves for the week, the little ones are sure to love this one. After all, you're going on vacation so it makes sense that the sharks are going on vacation too! The answer will help soothe their fears if they're worried about what's in the water. Flip to the next slide!

Get Giggles While Giving Assurance

Dad jokes can be funny and also provide the kids with a sense of assurance. If you have younger children, or it's their first trip to the beach, they might be scared of monsters in the ocean. You can let them know that the sharks are traveling too, so there's nothing to fear.

Sea Creatures Need Laughs Too

We all know that parenting comes with plenty of tickle fights and giggles. Hey, sea creatures need laughs too. This joke might not be biologically accurate (see the answer to learn why) but you're sure to get some smiles out of the kiddos.

4 of

Turn It into a Science Lesson

Remember we said this wouldn't be biologically accurate? It's definitely funny, but octopuses actually have eight arms (they're not called tentacles at all!). You can use this joke as an opportunity to teach the kids something new. For more marine life facts, you can tell them that squids do have tentacles–but only two. They also have eight arms. 

5 of

For All the Fishermen & Women

Do you love deep sea fishing, or casting lines in the local lake or pond? Bond over dad jokes surrounding your favorite dad-and-me activity. If you're into the summer sport, this is a GR8 one to tell while you're reeling one in. 

6 of

An Answer Kids Will Relate To

Part of what makes this joke GR8 is that kids can relate to the answer–live streaming! They're growing up in a digital world and this joke will let you know you're not as old as they think

7 of

For Those With Summer Birthdays

Spending a family birthday at the beach, or having a pirate-themed birthday party? What better time to tell a pirate joke? The answer makes perfect sense, but it's fun to watch the kids guess as they try to get it right. 

8 of

An Opportunity to Use Your Best Impressions

Dads, we know you do some GR8 impressions. Use your best pirate voice to tell them the answer. Then, encourage the kids to try it out too. You might be hearing "Aye Matey" for hours to come, but the endless laughs are worth it. 

9 of

For When You're Getting Exercise On

Do you and the family love to take bike rides as the sun goes down in the evening and the weather cools off, or along the boardwalk just cruising along? If you're a fan of cycling, this is the joke to tell. 

10 of

Don't Tell the Answer Until the Ride is Over

This is a fun one to ask at the beginning of your bike ride, but keep the answer until the end. When you return to the house and your kids are tired, ready to head inside, ask them the question again. They'll laugh because by the time they're really to call it quits, they're tired too. Who knew you could relate to a bike?!

11 of

For When You're Having a Seafood Feast

Is the family about to chow down on a feast of crab, lobster, and shrimp for dinner? Dad jokes are always GR8 around the dinner table and this presents the perfect opportunity. The answer can also provide a valuable life lesson.

12 of

The Answer Sneaks a Lesson In

Sharing is caring! Teach your kids not to be like those selfish crabs. You'll probably want to tell them that crabs aren't actually selfish, but it's a GR8 reminder to help them remember to pass the plates around the table.

13 of

For a Sweet Summer

Are you enjoying a cool dessert at the local ice cream shop or from the truck that drives around the neighborhood? Or a refreshing ice pop during the day? It's the perfect time to make a joke about sweets.

14 of

You Might Have to Explain the Answer

Another teachable moment, you may have to explain some of your dad jokes to the kids, and this is one of them. It gives you the opportunity to explain not only that "mint" is a phrase that means a lot of money, but also the process of "minting" money, or how the federal government produces those bills in your pocket.

15 of

A Lunchtime Joke

If you're making the kids sandwiches for lunch, this might be a good one. You can have them guess what you're making by asking the question–the punchline is the answer!

16 of

Present the Sandwiches & the Answer

You call it a "two-knee fish" of course! And that's what's on the menu for the day as well. Your kids can giggle over their sandwiches. Extra points if you use cookie cutters to make mini sandwiches that are actually shaped like fish (you'll get extra smiles, too).

17 of

For When You're Snacking

There's nothing better on a hot Summer day than snacking on some cool, refreshing fruit. It's healthy, sweet, and satisfying. Watermelon, strawberries, grapes, and of course.....

18 of

Cantaloupe

That's the answer, folks! Throw some cantaloupe into your fruit salad mix and tell this joke while you and the kids are relaxing eating your healthy snack. Or, cut the fruit into slices that are shaped like smiles. You can all have a good laugh together.

19 of

For When You're at the Local Pool

Whether you have a pool in your backyard or are at the local swimming spot, this is one of those dad jokes that you can do while you also show the kids your diving skills. 

20 of

Provide a Disclaimer

This is one of those jokes that you might want to provide with a disclaimer. Back flips are super cool, and if you can do one our hats are off to you. It may also be a good idea to teach kids about the dangers of slippery pavement around pools and how you should never dive in shallow water.
