I came across some interesting math puzzles over at MathPickleMy daughter likes doing dot-to-dot puzzles, but on this site, you'll find these puzzles with a twist: you use a ruler and only connect the pairs of dots that are a specific distance apart.

You can find both of these free downloads at Nyla's Crafty Teaching.
