Our paper has a child's crossword every Saturday. Lucy, 8 year old granddaughter who we are raising, and I sit down on a Monday night and do it together. Does make them think about the meaning of words. Some of her answers are right though don't fit, she is learning to look at the clues. I love crosswords hope that she will do eventually.
