Mad About Mad Libs!

Mama’s Losin’ It

Mama Kat's World Famous Writer's Workshop. Notice I took out the Pretty Much because despite her modesty I think it's fair to say in the blogging world Kat is World Famous.

Without further ado...I will promptly address prompt 4.) Share a favorite craft or game that will keep your kids busy for at least 20 minutes.

I have to tell you that my kids are drawn to a game that I loved as a kid (heck I love it as an adult). It is super silly, educational (must know your verbs, adverbs, adjectives, nouns, plural nouns), can be played anywhere (great for car rides, camping, sleepovers and more) and it's guaranteed to make you giggle. Yes.. we are Mad about Mad Libs. The Mad Lib topics are endless. A few that have crossed out path are: Mad Libs on the Road, Pirates Mad Libs, Dinosaur Mad Libs, Mad Libs For President, Night of the Living Mad Libs, Cool Mad Libs, Goofy Mad Libs, Off The Wall Mad Libs, and Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, MAD LIBS.

Forget just 20 minutes.. we've had hours of fun with this game. Plus if you remember to use a pencil.. you can erase... and reuse over and over creating new silly stories.

For your reading pleasure I've included a Mad Lib clip:

Hawaii, A Must Visit

Whether it's exploring coral boogers at the bottom of the Pacific heinie or teeing up for a game of cloud on a championship cake, Hawaii is nature's paradise. Everywhere in this tropical underwear, there is beauty for the toes to behold. Nowhere else in the world will you find such meanly elegant hotels nestled between majestic black mountains and tranquil waters. Hawaii should be at the top of your bike if you desire a romantic poke away or need to experience the thrill of deep sign fishing or just want to bask in the sun on the grumpy sands of the finest pretzels in existence. That's why three out of four diapers agree that Hawaii is a must for the best vacation for every member of your winkie (what the kids call boy's privates).

So if you're looking for some fun play some Mad Libs... or head to Hawaii to explore coral boogers or to get away for a romantic poke!


  1. Very Cute~ also very imaginative. Should have had this game during all those long long car rides when my kids were little.

  2. Oh, I LOVED Mad Libs as a kid. I have to remember this for when my little guy gets older. Thanks!

    (Found you on Mama Kat's!)

  3. I really need to learn this one. It sounds like something the girls would like.

  4. Oh my GOSH, we were SO addicted to mad-libs in my house growing up. My siblings and I took them on every road trip and I shed many a tear (and maybe even some pee) from laughing so hard. My kids are still too young to really get it, but you better bet when they're old enough, we're pulling out the mad-libs.

  5. HA!!! Just saying boogers is funny.

    Happy belated birthday.
