    My group class just played Stinky Stockings and begged to keep playing after they ate their pizza. We also played “This or That” as an ice breaker, and it was a hit. Thank you, Wendy Stevens! The prep was so easy with these games.

    We played Stinky Stockings (Students loved it!) and also tapped rhythm cups to Deck the Halls during our 2018 Christmas Camp. Appreciate all the great resources, Wendy!

    My students loved playing your Stinky Stocking game especially the acting component! It was a lot of fun and It’s perfect for small groups and an end of year recap or an all year round activity. Your materials are fantastic and encourage participation. I noticed the confidence grow within each of my students. I had just as much fun as they did! Thank you so much!!! 🎶🌈🌹

    I just had a Christmas Performance Workshop group lesson for my six students, and we played this game as an ice breaker game. They loved it! They didn’t want to stop! It was so much fun to watch the kids come together for the first time, and interact with one another. They absolutely loved the “acting” tasks and “finish a tune” challenge. Highly recommended for group lessons!
