Word List Twists _ Choose an interesting theme, make a word list, and then use only half the words in the puzzle. I once made a puzzle about roses for a newspaper. I called it "A Thorny Puzzle." I included a list of 22 words related to roses and then asked the solvers which 11 of these words were actually in the puzzle. Or, write a listless word search. For Grandpa's vegetable puzzle, for example, you could hide the names of ten vegetables and not tell him which ones they are.
School systems try to be politically correct during December and honor all cultural celebrations. Some systems choose to totally ban all celebrations to avoid antagonizing one group or another. Sometime kids Christmas activities must only be referred to as "holiday activities". Parents are left to search for quality educational games for Christmas they can use at home. They can search for free games on line, or purchase Christmas printable games to store on their computers for use now and in the future.
