Pizza Kids Love It

Pizza TShirt

Kids love Pizza and so do adults!  As a Parent midweek can be a bit of a challenge or perhaps another word could be stress full.  Then why not order a Pizza for dinner tonight.  Not only do kids love pizza, it is a fun way to teach kids about different types of toppings to pick from.  You can ask who want Sausage, Peperoni, pineapple, anchovies, spinach, and then play the game of them naming more.  When the pizza arrives, you can make it a big family project to open the box and count how many slices there are.
