Meanwhile to tickle the right side of the brain, there are numerous line drawings of each of the popular Cars characters that are available from various internet sites. A printer and scanner if available can translate these into hours and hours of creative silence. Copies can be duplicated in as many times as the child wishes to enjoy the pursuit, perhaps using and changing colors on the same picture as he pleases. These same pages can later on, with some help from mom or dad, be cut out and turned into an improvised jigsaw puzzle. And while on the subject, the same cut outs can be used as wall decors for the child's room, or as colorful covers for their notebooks and folders.
Word search puzzles are grids of letters arranged in rows and columns. At first glance they appear to be a completely random mishmash of letters, but if you look closely you can see within the grid that there are hidden words. The words may be placed horizontally (either left to right or right to left), vertically (upwards or downwards) or diagonally. The goal of the puzzle is to find the words hidden within the grid. Many people find these puzzles to be an interesting diversion, and you will often see this type of puzzle printed in magazines or newspapers. But it's not only adults who may enjoy these puzzles _ many children like solving them too.
