When spring break is on the horizon and Easter has some kids in your classroom buzzing about colored eggs and visiting bunnies, there’s just one thing to do: Pull out the Easter jokes for kids that let your students know you’re in on the fun!

Using humor in the classroom is a solid pedagogical tool that educational research shows can boost retention in kids, especially in the younger students who are inclined to appreciate silly Easter jokes. When researchers looked at knowledge retention among children watching Sesame Street, for example, they found that kindergartners and first graders who watched humorous segments scored higher and had better engagement than those who watched a non-humorous segment.

With all that in mind, we’ve pulled together some of our favorite Easter jokes for kids to employ in classrooms where Easter celebrations are going on!

  1. Why was the Easter Bunny so grumpy? He was having a bad “hare” day.
  2. What is the Easter Bunny’s favorite kind of music? Hip hop.
