Plus, its a great way to get your whole family laughing!

Mad Libs are those fun blank stories with missing words that you fill in. 

They are maybe considered the world’s greatest word game because they combine different parts of speech to make hilarious stories! 

They are a great way for kids to practice using vocabulary words while working work with different parts of speech and a great way for kids to make up stories.  

My kid is always begging us for a made up story and these are the best for that! They not only give him a made up story, but he gets to help make it up.  

If you need a quick refresher here is how they work: for each missing word, you must fill in a word that fits the descriptor, often a part of speech like adjective or noun.  For example the game may have a blank line and it may say it needs a verb so you could put a word like “run”. The key part of Mad Libs is not reading any of the story until you have filled in all the blank spaces. Your first step is going through each blank space and filling in missing words. After all the words are filled in, you get to read the story out loud and have a good laugh at the silliness!  

This printable contains three different Halloween Mad Libs and are great to use with kids of all ages.  

These Mad Libs ask for adjectives, plural nouns and verbs. The rest of the words you have to fill in are things like “a food” or “animal”.  This makes these Mad Libs the perfect printable for the whole family. 

Here are some tips when doing this with younger kids

– When filling in the missing words give your younger child a choice between two words and let them pick.  If your older child is stuck, this is also a great strategy!  For the missing words that ask for things like “an animal” give your younger child a chance to see if they can come up with their own word. 

Some ideas to make this even more fun:  

  • After you do all three Mad Libs, staple them together to make a halloween book!  My kid LOVED having this all Halloween season to read over and over!
  • Print multiple copies of these and do them over and over to hear different versions of the story! 
  • If you have older kids who can do this independently, its fun to have each person do their own and then have everyone share their version of the story.

Just saved these to print off for my 7th graders on Halloween! I'll create a numbered list for them to think of the words first, then give them the story to fill in. Of course, Mad Libs are no fun if you cheat!
