spanish jokes for kids for halloween

Halloween jokes in Spanish are a fun way of practicing vocabulary, listening and speaking skills with kids learning Spanish. Here are a few jokes in Spanish for kids for Halloween. They feature witches, vampires, skeletons, ghosts and dead guys.

For other occasions, there are lots of simple jokes that children learning Spanish can understand. I have written several posts with lists of jokes and suggestions for telling jokes to Spanish language learners. They have many of the most common Spanish jokes for kids and you can find them here:

What children understand will of course depend on their level and vocabulary. You may have to teach a specific word before telling a joke, or explain it after you tell it. That happens in English too; jokes are still a valuable language activity even if kids need some support to understand them. Be sure to see the posts above for suggestions on choosing and telling jokes with kids learning Spanish.

These Halloween jokes for kids are or more or less in order of difficulty, from less difficult to more difficult.
