Tell Jokes With Body Language
It's no secret that kids get a kick out of physical humor, especially when body parts are the jokesters. These classics are sure to amuse -- and make for truly unforgettable home videos and snapshots.
Get out the body crayons and draw lips where your thumb and forefinger meet. Add more facial features, then see if the hand can manage a tongue twister or two: try the classic "Unique New York," or the absurd "Girl Gargoyle, Guy Gargoyle."
Have one family member lie on a bed on her back with her head hanging over the side, a cloth draped over her body and a bandanna wrapped around her face. Use body crayons to draw eyes on her chin, then have her talk and sing to her heart's -- or is that chin's? -- content.
Draw a face on a volunteer's tummy using body crayons, with the belly button as the mouth. Now have him grab his belly with both hands and make it talk, scream, and tell jokes. Little kids, who think tummies are inherently funny, find this especially hilarious.
