Mad Libs....Cheap entertainment!

Anyone remember these?
I loved this little word game when I was growing up. Our family has recently rediscovered Mad Libs  and we are enjoying the silliness of some of the stories.


This year, we also discovered a junior edition of Mad Libs.
It is great for young readers.
It gives examples of nouns, verbs, adjectives, and misc. You can use one of the examples or you can come up with your own. It is also a little bigger, giving them more room to write. This is great for my first grader. It gives him practice with reading and writing....and an intro to the different parts of speech.

And get this....AC Moore sells Mad Libs for $3.99. And you can use your 40% off coupon! Now that is some cheap entertainment!

Happy Friday!
Enjoy your weekend!

  8. I LOVED those when I was younger. I had no idea they were still around. I might have to pick some up for when my little guy gets older. How fun!

  11. We used to love Mad Libs as kids. We would always make sure the word "smelly" got in there somehow just because we knew it would make us laugh. lol Thanks so much for linking up. :)
