Thanksgiving Lunchbox Jokes for Kids

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner? We finally picked out Halloween costumes, and now it’s time to start thinking about Thanksgiving dinner! Fortunately, I’m not hosting Thanksgiving this year, so I can focus on the fun stuff — like these cute Thanksgiving jokes.

I just know my kids are going to love these. How about yours? Are your children into jokes? The days of my kids bringing home knock-knock joke books are over, but we still love to laugh, so jokes never get old.

Okay — the knock-knock joke where you keep saying, “Knock, knock.” “Who’s there?” “Banana.” and then you repeat it over and over until you say, “Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?” That one gets old. If you haven’t heard it, let me know and I’ll put the whole joke in the comments.

These Thanksgiving lunchbox jokes are much cooler than the banana knock-knock joke. I promise! Today I’m sharing five jokes, but if you head over to my Etsy store, you’ll find enough to put one in your kid’s lunch all month long (22 total jokes).

And, yes, it is perfectly legal to slip a lunchbox joke somewhere other than a lunchbox. Slip them into your child’s backpack, his reading book, or even in the pocket of her jeans!

To download your free lunchbox jokes, click on the download link below. I like to print mine on cardstock, cut them out, and then laminate them so I can use them every year.

If you prefer to print yours at a photo shop (like Walmart or Costco) to save your color ink, I’ve got you covered. In addition to the pdf files, you’ll find 4×6 jpf files (2 jokes to a page) in my Etsy store as well. Choose which printing option is best for you. (I love the rich colors you get when you print on photo paper, but I also love the convenience of printing from home. Please note that colors do tend to darken when you print; particularly when you print on photo paper.

  1. Thank you very much for such useful information! I love your ideas ! i will try it and i am sure my kids will love it.

  2. The joke cards are such a brilliant idea to add to your children’s school lunch. I can imagine the surprise of finding them and then reading them out loud to their friends. :)

  3. These are such cute ideas of things to pop into lunchboxes around Thanksgiving time! Definitely going to be fun for kids to find when they open up their bag!

  4. These are awesome ideas. Makes your kids lunches a little more special.

  5. These look like so much fun, my boy still doesn’t understand about jokes but I will be checking them out, I also can’t believe Thanksgiving is around the corner, the year is gone in a flash.

  6. These are such cute Thanksgiving themed ideas! I have younger siblings in middle school who would love to get a few jokes packed with their lunches

  7. These look so cute! We don’t do Thanksgiving in the UK but I like the sound of the other jokes that you have :)

  8. These are TOO CUTE! can’t wait until my little one is born to share these memories with him ๐Ÿ’•

    • Congrats on your pregnancy, Carina. It will be a little while before you get to use ideas like these, but the time will fly! I wish I had a newborn again. (To snuggle–not to wake up with in the middle of the night!)

  9. I wish I could pack my office lunches with these jokes! ๐Ÿ˜‚ they’re so cute!

  10. These are so much fun! I love the notes. OMG the bingo is the COOLEST. Loooooooooove. I can’t wait until Thanskgiving!!!

  11. What a fun idea! I feel like a total slacker when it comes to my kids lunches. I’m not creative at all when it comes to that.

    • Hi, Heather. There’s no such thing as a slacker mom! We all have our areas where we shine and our areas where we do less or (in the case of these lunchbox jokes) copy things that other moms do. There are so many things I wish I did better!

  12. My boys make there own lunches so I don’t usually add any notes. I might just try this idea of a joke though.

    • You’re so lucky that your boys make their own lunches, Tara! Good for you for training them. Making lunches is one of my least favorite activities each day. I really need to train my kids to do it themselves.

  13. Oh my, these are adorable! My kids love a good joke! I need to look at your Halloween ones too!

  14. CARMEN | says

    These are so cute. The jokes are really funny. I have always wanted to try this. But my son can’t read yet ๐Ÿ˜…. Hopefully next year I can add these little add-ons.

  15. Isn’t it always nice to grab a snack while laughing to such funny jokes? I’m certain I too will appreciate such lunch boxes.

  16. The Beauty flicks says

    These are cute ideas. I have not heard that knock knock joke…. Can you please tell me the full joke.

    • Sure. Here goes: KNOCK, KNOCK. Whoโ€™s there? BANANA. Banana, who? BANANA BANANA. KNOCK, KNOCK. Whoโ€™s there? BANANA. Banana, who? BANANA BANANA. KNOCK, KNOCK. Whoโ€™s there? BANANA. Banana, who? BANANA BANANA. Repeat that several times โ€” thatโ€™s why it can get annoying โ€” then finish with this . . .) KNOCK, KNOCK. Whoโ€™s there? ORANGE. Orange, who? ORANGE YOU GLAD I DIDNT SAY BANANA? ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‚

  17. Brittany Vantrease says

    These are adorable. If I did something like this for my kids,I think I would be dubbed the cool mom. Either that, or my kids will pretend to be embarrassed, but secretly love them.

  18. Love all these fun ideas! I will definitely use the lunch box jokes. I need a bunch and prepare it this early. Yay!

Comments make me happy!
