"Lime" is the perfect word for making puns, because it rhymes with so many other words. Just find a word it rhymes with and use "lime" instead.

For example:
"Drop me a lime."
"It's about lime!"

Make It into a Game!

  1. Start by calling out a list of words that rhyme with lime: time, I'm, chime, climb, crime, dime, prime — hey, even "rhyme" rhymes with lime!
  2. With your list in mind, go around the room and have everyone make up a lime pun. Try to make your friends or classmates groan and giggle with your creativity.
  3. If you get stuck when it's your turn, you're out! See who can stay in the game for the longest amount of lime.
