When was the last time you played MadLibs? Believe it or not, the fun little books of silly stories are still made today and still pretty popular. During my days working at a local bookstore, we had a whole section full of Kids’ MadLibs that was super popular (and often trashed). They don’t just come in book form anymore, though. If you’re looking for ways to entertain (and educate) your kiddos when you can’t send them outside and that are maybe just a little different than usual, we found a massive collection of online games of MadLibs.
Some are printable, making them perfect for when you’re limiting screen time. Others are online, making them easy to do anywhere and can be done over and over, again. Don’t worry if you can’t remember your parts of speech, though, Mama. There are excellent online resources to help you brush up and even handy printables available.
1. Woo Jr.
Woo Jr. offers literally a massive collection of MadLibs games organized by genre.
2. Teachers Pay Teachers
Wanna help our teachers make a little extra dough? Teachers Pay Teachers can be used by parents, too, and is a great place to find all kinds of learning resources (including MadLibs) created by teachers. Often times they’re free, but some options can be purchased.
This is another great resource that caters to teachers but isn’t exclusive to school staff. Teachology offers up a decent chunk of MadLibs for kids.
Brightly put together a whole packet of printable MadLibs. You’d be remiss not to download and print them out for quiet time.
The official MadLibs are doing their part to keep up with the times, too. They’ve published a great collection of their stories on their website.
6. Glow Word Books
Glow Word Books offers a ton of MadLibs online. You can fill out the prompts over and over, again, too.
7. More Glow Word Books
True story: We actually found a second spot on the Glow Word Books site where you can play digital MadLibs.
8. Red Kid
For another long list of online MadLibs, Red Kid is the place to try. There’s enough there to last weeks, even if your kids do one a day.
9. MadLibs App
We’d be remiss if we didn’t send you to the original creators of MadLibs. They actually have an app that you can use… assuming you haven’t confiscated the screens this week.
10. Edu Place
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, educators know what’s up! They know MadLibs are a great way to teach your kids. Almost all spaces dedicated to learning seem to offer MadLibs. Edu Place is no exception.
11. Squigly’s Playhouse
Whoever Squigly is, he really loved MadLibs. Squigly’s Playhouse has quite a few to play.
Buy The Real Thing
OG MadLib’ers will tell you that the most fun way to play MadLibs is with one of their “old school” top-bound books and a trusty pen or pencil. If you’re heading out on a road trip or long flight, a bunky binder or printables isn’t feasible. And what about if you don’t have access to the internet? (Send help!) Before you duck out on your next adventure, hit your local bookstore or check out Amazon’s enormous collection of MadLibs books. They’re really the perfect size for that front pocket of a backpack. Plus, they come in a ton of cool themes, including Star Wars.
