# Thank you NHS By Ho Huen

This vector dot-to-dot puzzle is our Thank You to the NHS. Explore vector graphics with these vector dot-to-dot puzzles. Draw them by hand (and create your own) and then turn them into the SVG graphics language and see them in a web browser.

Instructions

Draw the picture on a grid of size and background colour as given in the first line of the instructions. Then create a series of shapes of the given colour by plotting and joining the dots. Finish back at the start to create each polygon shape. Create the shapes in the order given so one goes over the next. We provide collage versions where you have to cut out the shapes and match them to the shape plotted. Alternatively save our final version in the vector drawing language SVG and view it in a browser, then create your own.

Read our instruction page about dot-to-dot vector puzzles for more detailed instructions.

The Puzzle Picture (By Ho)

Plot and join the dots joining the last to the first of each shape, then colour in the shapes in the order given.

Now make your own “Thank You” dot-to-dot college puzzle either on paper or by editing the above powerpoint. Edit the SVG to create your own SVG pictures.

Try experimenting with the SVG file in a text editor. Change colours or positions of points (one change at a time). Predict what your change will do then view the result by opening the file in a web browser.

Here is BLANK-GRID-40×25  a blank sheet to print and plan your design on, or use squared paper, or edit the  Powerpoint puzzle sheet above. Then write out the instructions either in our dot-to-dot language for humans to follow or in a text editor as SVG for a computer to follow.
