Make Your Own Rad-Libs

I remember when our children were in primary school, they loved playing Mad Libs. We made sure we had a new book each time we went on vacation. It’s a simple, fill-in-the-blank story that usually makes no sense. It almost always makes the readers laugh at the nonsense.

This got me thinking about using this same idea to play with your spouse after a great time away. Or you could use it to remember a special time you had together–even your honeymoon. Have your spouse fill in the blanks and you do the same. Read what you both filled-in and compare stories. Chances are your stories will be more “Rad,” than “Mad.” This is why we’re calling them Rad-Libs.

Use the following as it is, or use it as a template to create your own. Most of all have fun!
