I always resented connect-the-dot games... as a kid I thought they insulted our intelligent... the pattern of the dots was always clearly a turkey (or santa or a bunny or whatever). So when I was asked to do an illustration for damali ayo's I Can Fix It I decided to take the opportunity to crate a connect-the-dots that's worthwhile.

Unfortunately damali ended up having her booklet (which is a list of 10 things we can do to create healthier racial interactions) use clip art. Coordinating the artist-contributors was taking too much time (and, I suspect, a number of the contributors were only half-heartedly into the project). Anyway, I don't want to waste the connect-the-dots, so here it is (minus its original caption of "Hi, I'm white!").

Click on the image for the connect-the-dots picture. Print it out and follow these directions (it works a little differently than standard connect the dots, so you do need the directions).

Loved this. I am using it to show a group how a using a systematic approach is important. Do the puzzle with instructions (systematically) and then without and it show a dramatic point! thanks

This is the best I've seen... but I only got half way through with the instructions! :-(. Would love permission to print this (with full instructions of course - I'm only so mean!) in my kids magazine. Email me at info@kidzine.ca!

I thought this was great! My 8 yo son did the puzzle, while I called out the instructions. We's love to see more of these, the usual dot-to-dots are too easy and predictable, like you say. Thanks!
