Road Trip Tool Kit: Mad Libs

Remember waaaaaay back, like 2 years ago, when our family went on a loooooong road trip, that ended up being even longer than we intended?

And remember how I promised to let you know how we survived all that time on the road with our kiddos ?   Yeah.  That hasn't happened yet.  I figured out why.  It's because it's too much to include in just one post.

So, with many of us planning to hit the road in the next week or so, I thought I'd share one little gem that has been a lifesaver for us on more than one occasion.

Mad Libs.

That's right: they don't just reinforce nouns and verbs, adjectives and adverbs, they're also quite silly and fun, and a great way to ease tension and pass the time in an enclosed, moving vehicle.

We keep half a dozen Mad Libs books in our vehicle at all times.  Even our youngest passenger enjoys filling in the blanks (he doesn't know what the parts of speech are called, but we just explain it to him.  Oh yeah, he's learning, too!) and listening to the resulting hilarity. 

Want to save a little money?  Don't have time to get to the store before setting off on your road trip?  There are tons of printable mad libs online.  Just check with your favorite search engine.
