Adding a bit of learning fun to your day just seems to brighten everything a bit, doesn’t it? Life can get crazy and it’s so easy to let special moments with your kids get lost in the shuffle. If you’re like me and want to prioritize quality time with your kids, I have a resource that can help you make that happen.
Bonus points: this resource has a Dr. Seuss theme!
Find out how my five boys and I are using these Dr. Seuss-Inspired Mad Labs for family and homeschool fun. These free printables are also fabulous for parties and classroom use. Super ways to celebrate Dr. Seuss and Read Across America Day (March 2) as you spark learning fun with kids.
Fabulous Fun with Dr. Seuss-Inspired Mad Libs
We love all things Dr. Seuss in our home. Our library of his books has been well-loved and become family favorites. It’s natural for my boys to beg for more Dr. Seuss activities, games, and learning fun!
One of our favorite ways to take a homeschool brain break is with Mad Libs™ and activities like it. My boys and I shared many giggles over our Harry Potter-Inspired Mad Libs. I knew it was time to create Dr. Seuss-Inspired ones 😉
Smiley (8) and Bear (6) helped me browse through our collection of Dr. Seuss books. They chose a few of their favorites and worked with me to create these Dr. Seuss-Inspired Mad Libs.
Oh my stars! Both boys were super excited to share our creation with their brothers. During a homeschool brain break, we brought out these printables and got a great ab workout in with lots of laughing.
Why We Love Dr. Seuss-Inspired Mad Libs
Our homeschool has discovered the many benefits of Mad Libs. We have used various levels of this fun fill-in-the-blank sentence game and it continues to be one of the most requested activities for our homeschool and family.
Here are a few of the reasons why my boys love to play Mad Libs:
- “I get to practice grammar in a not-boring way.” -Professor, 12
- “Mad Libs make me laugh so hard that my stomach hurts! And I just can’t stop smiling!” -Smiley, 8 (who always can’t stop smiling)
- “I like thinking of the most ridiculous words ever to make it even better. So, I guess it’s good for vocabulary?” -Captain, 15
- “I love waiting to see how silly our stories are going to be! I poke around in my brain for clever words.” -Bear, 6
- “Mad Libs are funny!” -Xman, 3 (who said that in the sweetest preschool voice!)
My favorite reason for using these fill-in-the-blank sentence games with my boys: sneaky learning! As we work on a Mad Lib, I am explaining different parts of speech and their roles in sentences. Plus, my boys are building excellent vocabulary banks for their writing and communication skills.
