Mad Libs: Quarantine

By Cecelia Davis, Kid Editor-in-Chief, age 11

While on quarantine, copy this Mad Lib onto a sheet of paper and fill in the
blanks with the help of a friend or family member! Note: when the Mad Lib
asks for a verb, be sure to use a verb that fits well with an object, like the
verbs “eat” or “hug.” Using verbs like “stare” or “run” won’t work unless you use something like “stare at” or “run towards.”

outside, and I liked waking up to a [COLOR] sky. I was
determined to make the best of this [ADJECTIVE] situation.
