This is a Christmas themed game to teach the “Listening to ALL the words” rule. Print out as many pictures as you need for your group and give one to each child. When everyone has got a picture then say “In a minute i am going to say the names of two Christmas things. If I say the name of your picture then you have to stand up and change places. If it is going well then you can introduce a rule that if you say “Christmas” then everyone has to stand up and change places.
