Step 1: Design your maze Consider the type of maze you want to construct. Depending on the complexity, computer software can provide algorithms needed to make your maze using GPS technology. Don't forget to take height into account. Tip Professional maze-building companies can be hired to design and build a custom maze. Step 2: Select the locale Pick a location for your maze, making sure you have enough acreage to fit the entire maze. Measure and mark the dimensions carefully with spray paint, according to your selected algorithms. Tip Know which municipal codes your maze will have to meet. Fire and engineering officials may need to inspect and approve the structure. Step 3: Get straw bales Solicit local farmers for bales of straw. Depending on the size of your maze, you'll need several hundred to over a thousand bales. You may be able to sell the bales once the event is finished. Step 4: Gather your volunteers Work with local PTOs, churches, and school groups -- anyone affiliated with your organization -- to round up as many volunteers as you can. Step 5: Start building Haul the bales to the maze location with a tractor. Follow the spray paint markers and build the maze to the desired height. Once completed, decorate the maze for a fun or spooky atmosphere. Did You Know? The Egyptian labyrinth is the first recorded maze in history, described by the Greek historian Herodotus in the fifth century BCE.
