M5 Dot to Dot

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Aim: To encourage young people to use their vivid imaginations in drawing picture. Taken from the BB Anchors Pro Pack Mind M-5


• Template
• Coloured pens, pencils


• Young People join dots on the templates to make a picture and colour in.

Additional activity:
• Each member draws five dots anywhere on a piece of A4 paper. The paper is then swapped with someone else.
• Young people then join all five dots together with one continuous line, to make the shape of a face with eyes, nose, mouth, etc.

The leader might need to give an example to show how it is done.

Stop after three minutes and ask the boys to hold up their drawings. Run this two or three more times and see how they use their imagination to create more ideas.

Leaders might need to help some members to get them started. Once they are used to it, this can be used again and again.

Try this activity with six dots on a page and get the young people to draw an animal, a robot, a car, a building or a space ship, etc.
