Two little girls outside dressed up as witches laughing.

Witches are absolutely fascinating - they can fly on broomsticks, do magic spells with their wands and stir up incredible potions in their cauldrons.

Whether you're searching for jokes for Halloween or you just love hearing stories about witches and dressing up in a pointed hat and cape, then you've come to the right place. We've conjured up some really funny witch jokes that'll enchant your friends and family when you tell them.

The Harry Potter books have made witches (and wizards) really cool recently - who wouldn't want to be as smart as Hermione Granger, as brave as Ginny Weasley or play Quidditch as well as Cho Chang? But witches haven't always had an easy time or inspired funny witch jokes. In medieval times, people feared witches and hunted them down and apparently burned them at the stake.

And did you know, that while we associate witches with Halloween, in Sweden people believe witches come out over Easter, while other countries believe they emerge on Midsummer's Eve. So you'd better watch out for strange shadows flitting across the sky. Whoever your favourite witch is from Sabrina to The Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz, and whatever spell you love best (it's got to be abracadabra, surely?), you'll be bewitched by all these funny jokes for kids inspired by witches and all the things associated with them like black cats, broomsticks and cauldrons.
