From the Wayback Machine: Parts of Speech Car Game

August 11, 2008 @ 6:25 am | Filed under: , , ,

Originally published in November, 2005 as “The Purple Cow Hula-Hooped Boisterously.”

This is a game we played in the car yesterday, all the way to town and back. I assigned each of the girls a part of speech: noun, verb, adjective, adverb (one girl had to take two parts in each round). From there it went something like this:

Me: Miss Noun, what is it?

Beanie: A giraffe!

Me: Miss Adjective, what kind of giraffe?

Jane: A hungry giraffe.

Me: Miss Verb, what did the hungry giraffe do?

Rose: It bounced!

Me: Miss Adverb, how did the hungry giraffe bounce?

Jane: Enthusiastically!

All together: THE HUNGRY GIRAFFE BOUNCED ENTHUSIASTICALLY!

Wonderboy: Huh?

    Oh!

    This is the kind of stuff I’m always looking for! We do mad libs but it ALWAYS devolves in to versions of vomiting, gas, and bathroom humor…such is the magic of boys 🙂
