Mad-Lib Stories for Children

In the tradition of Mad-Libs, here’s a great site that will give you hours and hours of family fun.

In this classic phrasal template word game, one player prompts others for a list of words to substitute for blanks in a story, before reading the often comical or nonsensical story aloud. There are over 2000 user-created children’s stories on Word Blanks, including favorite nursery rhymes, children’s stories, theme songs and original stories.

Most of these are perfectly fine for all ages, but a very few can get a little “kid gross”, so you may wish to preview the stories before playing them.
