Dots and Boxes Freebie

Dots and Boxes is a pencil and paper game that probably every child (and adult!) has played at least one time in their lives!  The great thing about Dots and Boxes, like Tic-Tac-Toe and Hangman, is that you only need a scrap of paper and a nubby old pencil to be able to play.  Trust me, these are great games to keep the kids busy while you're sitting in the waiting room at the dentist's office for two hours while another patient has emergency surgery...or such like.

So even though you don't need any special game board or paper to play, it's still fun to have a pre-printed board to play on.  I've whipped up two different pages for you today.  One has 2 small game boards and 1 medium game board.  This sheet also includes some instructions, in case you and your children have forgotten the rules!  The other sheet has one extra large game board on it.  So choose your board and have fun playing with your kids.  Or give them some sheets when they say they're bored and make them play with each other!  (That option sounds best to me this summer!)

Just click on the pages above to download the printable sheets from Google Drive.

I was looking for some pre-printed forms to use during occupational therapy sessions and these look perfect. Thank you!

Your pin brought back a flood of sweet memories of my dear grandmother. We spent many hours playing this game in the 1960’s. When I was young I thought she had invented the game just for the two of us. Thank you , thank you.
