The aim of this study is to determine how the 5-6 year-old preschool children evaluate the humour through pictural analysis of their drawings about humour. The study was conducted with 52 preschoolers aged 5-6 at independent preschools attached to the Ministry of National Education. The data were collected through drawing and interview techniques. The obtained data were analysed by using the content analysis technique. The drawings by the preschoolers were found to support the Absurd Theory, the incongruity and the stages of development in humour, Bariaud's and McGhee's theories about the preschoolers and their styles of expressing the humour.
