You don't have to be a homeschooler to have a little educational fun. I remember doing Mad Libs over summer break when I was a kid. While trying to help my own children remember the differences between Adjectives and Adverbs, Nouns and Pronouns I figured they too could use a few mad libs. What I didn't think was that I would go through a whole ream of paper printing it out for them and using every internet resource I have because they liked them so much.
