Puzzle pathways lead to creative thinking. A-MAZing activities help kids see that the fun in reaching goals is the planning and process of getting there.
Plan a maze on one of your favorite themes. Pizza? A trip to an amusement park? A soccer championship? Decide what the goal will be at the end.
In one corner of your paper, use Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils to write Start. In another corner write Finish. Add pictures to the Start and Finish that illustrate your theme and the end goal.
Draw your maze in between the Start and Finish. Put in lots of twists and turns and dead-ends on the many paths, creating one clear pathway that leads from start to finish. If you change your mind, just erase!
On both sides of the pathways, add pictures to make the trip interesting.
Think up new ways to draw a maze, such as in a circle or square. Swap mazes with friends and have fun finding your way through each other's puzzles.
