Hello, my name is Nicole Valentine and on behalf of Expert Village, I'm here to talk to you about how to coordinate birthday games for a birthday party. Now we're going to discuss another birthday game and this one also happens to be an oldie but goodie. And this game is called connect the dot. This is a perfect game if you want the kids in your birthday party to kind of calm down. Let's say after they've eaten, or even the birthday cake. But you want to draw about 4 lines of dots containing 5 dots a piece in each line like so. You can easily use a white board if you have one at home. If not first use a poster board and you can hang it on your wall. Just be creative and use whatever you have at home. Now with another color marker I am going to be the first person to participate in this game. I'm going to choose to connect the dot. Let's say I choose from here to here. The goal is to try to make a box. So another party guest will take the marker and let's say they want to connect the dot from here to here. And you continue this pattern until eventually there won't be that many more dots to connect. The person that actually makes a square with the dots, that person gets to put their initial in that box. And if you would like to make this into a team competition game, you can give two teams a name, red team, blue team. So when a team connects the dot, they can put their name and the team that has the most squares at the end is of course the winner.
