Creating Valentines: MadLibs on the Go

Creating Valentines: MadLibs on the goI must confess that I love creating Valentines with the girls each year! It is always a crafty time where we get to be creative, sit and chat, and learn valuable lessons in generosity and persistence.

This year, for our third-grade daughter, we took our inspiration from these great MadLib Valentines. We combined the brilliant MadLib idea with this creative packaging and are really happy with the results. My daughter likes the fact that they are “really unique” and I love that we are sneaking in a bit of a (sugar free) learning experience!

Creating Valentine's: MadLibs on the go


With over 10 years of EDU experience and a growing family, Mariah started Playful Learning in 2008 as a resource for parents and teachers. In 2010 Playful Learning received the Parent’s Choice Gold Medal, and in August of 2011, Shambhala Publications released her first book, Playful Learning: Develop Your Child’s Sense of Joy and Wonder. Mariah has an M.S. Ed in Elementary Education and was that girl sitting in the back of class thinking about what she would do differently if she was the teacher. Now she is happily working with a team of gifted educators to bring life-changing lessons to children, families, and schools around the world. In her free time she can be found taking long walks, enjoying a cup of tea, or swimming in the Atlantic with her husband and two daughters.

  1. This is fabulous! Thank you for posting! I love that someone has a similar parenting style…and quite pleased that you are much craftier than I!  Happy (almost) Valentine’s Day!

  2. I really love this idea! My daughter saw the MadLib valentine idea on Pinterest, but I wasn’t sure how to put it together in a pleasing way. You have given me just that! Can you tell me, where did you find the plastic vials! The link you have is for glass vials, not allowed in school.

  4. I love the idea, and plan to do it for my son who is in 2nd grade. The only problem that I have is the Mad Libs that I purchased were put together with the words needed for one sheet on the back of the sheet above it. Were yours the same way?
