    Mazes have been used by many cultures for entertainment and even as a source of meditation. Some mazes, like those made with hedges or corn, are so big that you can walk through them! Another word for a maze is labyrinth. Making mazes is a snap—but solving them may not be! Get together with your friends to make puzzles to fool each other.

    To begin a maze, use Crayola® Fine Line Markers to draw a convoluted line from one side of a sheet of white paper to the other side. Your lines can be curved, jagged, or whatever kinds you like. Mark both ends of the line. You can even cut your paper to go with the shape of the maze with Crayola Scissors.

    The object of the game is to find the line that goes unbroken from one side of the page to the other. Use your markers to draw more lines, starting at the same place. Make sure these later lines are complicated, but never go all the way to the other side. Make other lines that begin at the end, but don’t make it to the beginning. Fill your maze with lines, designed to confuse the person playing. Trade mazes with friends and family for hours of fun!
