Inspired by Mad Libs®, this is our take on the classic wordplay fill-in-the-blank story game.
We call it Wacky Wordplay!
The Plot: the absentminded rock painter
This particular story is one many of us can relate with — constantly thinking about our rock painting hobby. Written from the perspective of a kid, it tells the story of a child's crazy rock painting mom.
If you read the story and it sounds like an 8-year old wrote it, that's because our very own daughter wrote this one! 👧
