For those who have not had the overwhelming pleasure of creating a Mad Lib before, the rules are simple: write down the first word that comes to mind consistent with the type of word indicated (e.g. “gooey” for an adjective), then read your own unique story as a whole once every blank is filled! We hope you enjoy this activity! Let us know what your stories look like on our social media pages!

I am going to wear extra (clothing item plural) and (clothing item plural) so that I am
not cold. Some of my (adjective) friends said they would (verb) with me, so we can talk
about all the (adjective) characteristics of the animals! My favorite animal last year was
the (animal), it had a beautiful (body part). I wonder if they will have any turkeys; I’d

I’ll keep reading all of the Hawk Talks the Wildlife Medical Clinic at the University of
Illinois publishes! Happy holidays!!
