Translation:The children write to Santa Claus.

As Joao explained:
- Crianças = children (exactly)
- Meninos = boys
- Meninos = boys and girls (1)
- Meninas = girls
(1) - Only true in plural!!! And only when you can clearly know there are girls in the group, or else people will certainly assume "boys" in general statements.
The singular version does not accept that:
- Criança = child
- Menino = boy
- Menina = girl
