Poetry Mad Libs for Children from National Literacy Trust’s Words for Life

What a fabulous idea!

Mad libs are fun word games that allow you and your children to create silly stories or poems by filling in the gaps on a template, while also learning about different types of words (nouns, adjectives, verbs and more).

Go to the Literacy Trust’s page HERE to see and download the mad libs version of the popular poem The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear to create your own twist on a classic! The original is included too.
