Every kid loves Mad Libs – those silly short stories that are created by filling in the blank with a few mystery words. I turned a short Mad Libs style story into a printable Mother’s Day card that makes a sweet bonding moment between mom and child.
Mad Libs are great because with a little help from an adult, even the youngest kids can create a silly story. This one should appeal to kids from toddlers to teens.
It’s pretty straightforward to print, cut, and write. But I made a tutorial just in case. Find the download at the end of the post.
How to make a Mad Libs style card
- printable card, download at the end of this post
- card stock
- paper trimmer or scissors
- colorful pens or pencils
Start by printing the card page on 8.5×11-inch card stock. One card prints on a single sheet of paper. I linked to the printer I’m currently using above, but of course, this will work on whatever you have.
Use a paper trimmer or scissors to cut out the card on the outline. I like the paper trimmer because it creates a smooth, clean line, but scissors are fine too.
Fold the card in half with the images on the outside. Crease the edge with your fingernails, a ruler, or anything smooth.
Fill in the mad libs style words on the back of the card without looking at the front. It asks for things like a verb and a food.
Open the card back up and copy the words from the back next to the matching numbers on the front. Read the letter to mom and enjoy the giggles!
There are a couple of ways to gift this to mom. You could have the kids fill it out and give it to her with the answers done. Or write a message on the inside and then let her sit down and fill it out with the kids for a fun – and funny – Mother’s Day activity.
