Free Printable Mazes

Updated on May 4, 2013

Got Bored Kids? Hand Them Some Mazes to Solve!

These free printable mazes range from beginner mazes that even a small child can solve to complicated, intricate monstrosities that will puzzle even the most brilliant adult, at least for a few minutes!

Mazes teach children problem solving skills (look at the big picture but start small and look for ways to get to the end all the way through the maze) and flexibility (you hit a dead end? go back and take a new route).

But, most of all, mazes are fun! They also get kids away from the computer doing some hands-on problem solving.

Make Your Own Mazes

Draw a Shape Then Fill It With a Maze

If you want a real challenge, ask kids to draw a shape (just the outline) of an object. It can be anything, like a tree or a house or an animal. Anything.

Then you take the picture and make a maze inside the shape. Be sure to mark the start and finish points so they'll know where those points are.

Use your judgment on how hard or challenging to make the maze. Go easy on little kids and make an older child's maze difficult so it's a challenge.

      In my final years of high school, a group of us used to pass the time by creating mazes on sheets of paper. Some of these were incredibly complex and took hours to complete, and some even used the holes punched in the sheet of paper to go through to the other side (catacombs) and to continue there. They used to be very challenging to create, and a lot of fun to solve as well.
