How to Play Blankity Blanks

What You'll Need:

  • Paper
  • Pencils

Step One: Pick out a page from a story you've just read, or choose a poem you know. Write down a few of the key words from the story or poem.

Step Two: Now ask your friend or family member to replace those words on the page with words of their own, without reading the story first.

Step Three: Then insert their words in the real story or poem -- the results will be rib-tickling surprises that really change the meaning of the story, one random word at a time!

Story Time Twist challenges kids to weave a yarn that incorporates random words. Learn how to play this group word game for kids on the the next page.
