A-MAZing Kids

A-MAZing Kids craft

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.

  • 1.

    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.

  • 2.

    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.

  • 3.

    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!

  • 4.

    On both sides of the pathways, add pictures to make the trip interesting.

  • 5.

    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.
