Need a dot-to-dot font

I am looking for a font that shows letters as dots that can be joined togther to form the letter.
Why you might ask - it is a great way of teaching children their letters to get them to join the dots to produce letters and words but I cannot produce enough material to keep them occupied
Thanks,

These dots are pretty close together, but may be good for younger kids if printer very large.

Thanks MasseyM
Although this is a Dot-to-Dot font the dots are too close togther
This makes it of limited value for teaching children as the dots need to be far enough away to challenge their ability to "draw" the letters.
Is it possible to "edit" this font or create a new one with fewer dots?
Thanks,

Here's a link to FontEditor stuff.

Also, if you do search within your Browser for Free Font Editors, or shareware, you'll get lots of hits.

Just be careful of copywright on the font.  Some font folk don't mind you editing their stuff, provided you let them know.  Others get a bit upset.
