Do your kids love Mad Libs? My kids think they are hilarious! These stories start out as a paragraph with a bunch of blanks. One player asks the other players, who haven’t read the story, to supply nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc. to fill in the blanks. The resulting story is hilarious because it generally makes no sense!
We decided to create some winter themed fill-in-the-blank stories. This silly activity actually has educational value as it’s a great way to practice parts of speech! Plus, they are a great way to pass the time on a snow day, on a road trip, or just an evening at home.
There are four different fill-in-the-blank stories to print.
- How to Make the Best Hot Chocolate
- Things to Do on a Snow Day
- My Amazing Ice Hockey Game
- How to Make a Snowman
This is my first time making Mad Lib style stories, so let me know if you like them and find them useful! I can easily make more on different topics.
I would recommend these fill-in-the-blank stories for kids ages 7 or 8 and up. They’ll need to know the basic parts of speech (noun, adjective, adverb) and know what plural means. Some 6 year olds will do great with these, but overall, I’d say 2nd grade and up is the best bet.

I love these! We love doing mad libs, and I find it's really great for helping my kiddo learn the different parts of speech. So this format works great for us doing them together (I ask him for the parts of speech and might give a little prompt to help him remember). I find this format trickier to do independently (it's really hard to not cheat and read the story)... so my only suggestion would be to add a place up top with just the listing of what parts of speech are needed (outside the context of the story)... I find that makes for even funnier stories! But thanks so much for pulling these together. Looking forward to doing them with my kiddo tonight after school.
