Remember Mad Libs as a kid? Remember how funny it was to read the stories after writing in off-the-wall nouns, adjectives and verbs? Now your children can recreate the fun by making Mad Love "cards" for their friends. We were able to find Mad Libs books at our local craft store for a few dollars. It just takes a page per child. Then roll with origami paper and add a tag. So easy and fun! See how it's done at Family Fun Magazine's website: http://familyfun.go.com/valentines-day/valentines-day-cards/mad-love-1033777/
These cards were created using card-stock paper in red and animal print found in craft stores. The animal figurines which come in a tube, can also be found in craft stores. Our LAN spotters saw some at Micheal's.
