Teaching Our Children The Meaning of Christmas

Santa, reindeer and elves. Lights, decorations and presents. It’s easy for children to get wrapped up in the hype of Christmas. Sometimes even us parents do. And it’s hard not to as the holiday continues to become more and more commercialized. We can’t even finish Thanksgiving before it all starts, after all.

1. Hungry Santa

Fatten up Santa before Christmas. Tilt the device to move Santa’s mouth under falling treats, but watch out for the healthy broccoli. Santa gets fatter and fatter as he chomps on all the goodies. Give him some fatty bonuses by bouncing the treats off his belly before he eats them, or eating long strings of treats all in a row. Go for the elusive “Crazy Chomp” bonus. You can’t play this one without laughing out loud.


Classic Cheesy Tuna Melt

One thing I know for sure is that when I am stressed with a busy week there are two things I want from my dinner. Those two things are easy, and comfort food. At the end of the day I love to settle down around the table with some of our more fun and comforting family favorites.  I don’t want to spend an hour or more around the stove whipping together a lavish meal filled with expensive ingredients that I can’t even pronounce.  I’m talking about classic feel good and affordable fare for our whole family.
