Why I love boat puns as a mom

Several years ago, as a young mom, I was trying to find the perfect way to connect with my kids while they were away at school. One day, I decided to put a printable lunchbox joke in their lunches. I had no idea this simple (but silly) note would make such a big impact on our relationship in the best way possible! 

Every time my kids became interested in something or the seasons changed, I would add to our joke and riddle collection (like our fish jokes, turtle jokes, or our confusing riddles) 10 years later (and counting) jokes and lunchbox joke cards are still connecting us with one another. 

I know what you are thinking because I thought the same, “How can a joke connect me with my kids?” 

Trust me! It can! 

Not only have I received thousands of emails from readers telling me how jokes and puns on our website have changed their relationship with their kids, but I have seen firsthand in my own family how simple conversations and jokes can break the ice, relieve stress, and bond parents and kids in the simplest ways possible to create lasting relationships with one another.

I know these boat puns can come in handy in your life, too!
