I think the holes would happen to fall on the cracks.  :D But cutting out a pie shaped piece would stop the worst of the uncontrolled cracks and might prove to be interesting to the kids.

Cut one kerf from edge to center and let it move. This will make sure it can move AND allowing one BIG crack will likely prevent multiples. I concur w/ all written about PEG, I have used it a good bit.
