Holiday Mad Lib

Lollypop Ornament

Good morning!

I’ve been a little under the weather the past few days, so the blog post I had in mind for this week will have to be postponed. Instead, let’s have a little fun with a Holiday Mad Lib! Everyone knows how to play, right? You fill in the blanks in the story BEFORE you see the story. Then I plug in your random answers, share the results, and hilarity ensues.

Here’s how this is going to work: I’ll provide a numbered list of the types of words I need below. You’ll choose a blank to fill in and post your answer in the comments, along with the number. For instance, if you wanted the adjective in #4 to be “slimy,” then your comment would say, “#4 slimy.” That way I’ll know where the word goes in the story and hopefully nobody will double up.

Oh, and don’t be naughty. Mad Libs have a habit of sounding naughty no matter how tame your answers are, so really there’s no need for any added effort in that area. 🙂

Here goes! I’ll post the finished story when all the blanks have been filled in. Be creative!

#1 – Verb (present tense)
#2 – Adjective (Bonus points if this adjective rhymes with #4!)
#3 – Noun
#4 – Adjective (Bonus points if this adjective rhymes with #2!)
#5 – Verb ending in “ing” (Bonus points if this verb rhymes with #7!)
#6 – Type of food
#7 – Verb ending in “ing” (Bonus points if this verb rhymes with #5!)
#8 – Noun (plural)
#9 – Adverb
#10 – Verb (present tense)
#11 – Noun (Bonus points if this noun rhymes with the adjective in #13!)
#12 – Verb (present tense)
#13 – Adjective (Bonus points if this adjective rhymes with the noun in #11!)
#14 – Adverb
#15 – Verb ending in “ing” (Bonus points if this verb rhymes with #16!)
#16 – Verb ending in “ing” (Bonus points if this verb rhymes with #15!)
#17 – Verb (present tense)

Have fun! And if you need a refresher on the various parts of speech, check out the handy-dandy chart below.
