CTC Script Scramble


Looking for some family fun for car rides, or beat-the-heat indoor activities? Check out CTC Script Scramble! We’ve taken pages from some of our favorite scripts over the last few seasons and removed key words and phrases for you to make your OWN silly songs and kooky conversations. One player prompts the group for nouns, verbs, adjectives, nonsense words, and more to substitute for blanks in the template – then, giggles abound when you read your creation aloud! Send in your funniest, most creative pages for a chance to be featured on our social media.
