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 pen and paper puzzles containing a grid of letters. The player's task is to locate words hidden within this grid. Each word is in a straight line, but can be placed in any direction, horizontally (left to right, or right to left), vertically (upwards or downwards), or diagonally. Just to make the puzzle that little bit more difficult, words may overlap or intersect, and of course not every letter in the grid is actually part of a word.
