WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
I was looking into buying therapeutic games (the Ungame, The Talking, Feeling and Doing game, etc.) to use with my counseling groups but when I came across this bundle I bought it immediately. It provides way more topics than your traditional therapeutic board game and can be adapted to any game you already have without having to spend a ton! The prep was easy and not so time consuming and I love the variety of print options provided (black and white, mid color and full color) as it gives you the freedom to print however you desire. I love all products WholeHearted School Counseling creates and just recently requested a custom bundle! Anita provides amazing quality of work and is also very friendly and personable.

I love this resource! I printed and laminated all of the boards, they are fun and easy to use alone or with an existing game like candy land.

This resource is a great idea! I love all of the different topics offered. I printed and laminated them, and use them with the game boards provided sometimes and sometimes with regular board games. I love being able to have this on hand for an activity that engages students in something other than just talking. Most of my students were receptive to the questions and liked playing.

Go to resource for me. Have them printed, laminated, and dice ready and I know it’s something fun for the kids and we get to talk about great topic related questions. Thank you!

I love this resource. It has saved me a ton of money as I was looking at buying “therapy” games for each topic and they are are expensive. This is easy to use and covers a wide variety of topics.
