I wrote a fun mad lib you can play at your Christmas parties or family get-togethers. We tried it at one of our gatherings, and everyone was rolling in laughter.
Tell your guests you have an unfinished story that you need them to help you complete (but don't read them the story until it's completed). All they need to do is sharpen up their grammar and give you adjectives, adverbs, nouns, specific names, and other words. Below, you'll find the template that explains how to fill in each empty line.
When you're done, try reading the story aloud in one go without wetting your pants laughing. I am not responsible for any complications from the hysterical laughter you are sure to expect. Be sure to encourage creativity and have fun!

We tried this at our party last night. I told them to be very creative and off the wall with their answers. I thought we were going to have to bring in the oxygen. It was sooooooo funny how it turned out.
