I remember getting those great mad libs books made with invisible ink when I was a kid. I used to beg my parents to buy them for me all the time, but I only seemed to get them as car games when we went on road trips. If computers and printable mad libs were around back then, I would have been in heaven!
This may sound naive, but I really didn’t put two and two together that mad libs were such a great language arts activity. I just knew that when we were done, they were always hysterical!
