Connect the Dots is one of the fun brain games and fun driving games for kids.
You can buy graph paper fairly inexpensively at a dollar store or at a discount store.
Or, you can use notebook or copy/printer paper that you already have at home.
Begin by making 100 dots on paper, 10 going across, and 10 up and down rows.
One player goes first, drawing a line between 2 dots that are by each other.
The next player goes. He has to connect one end of the first player's line to another dot.
Play continues in this manner. The line starts to look like a snake!
Lines can't cross over each other, and players try to avoid forming a box.
The player who has no moves left but to make a box, is the loser.
You can play a set number of rounds to see who is the overall winner.
Kids can play this in the car when going on a trip, at home or at a picnic.
It starts out easy enough, but once a lot of lines are drawn you'll see it's not so easy to NOT make a box!
Have fun with this! Why not play kids versus parents and see who wins!
