Step 1: Draw a grid Use a pencil and ruler to draw a large square or rectangle on plain paper. Mark dots at the edges at equal intervals. Draw lines to connect the dots to create a grid. Make light lines so you can easily erase them later. Tip On graph paper, draw a square or rectangle to define the boundaries of your maze. Step 2: Create the entry and exit points Choose two spots along the outer edges for the start and finish. Erase a break in the lines at these points to create an entry and exit for your maze. Step 3: Draw a path from entry to exit Draw a meandering path leading from the entry to the exit. Include lots of twists and turns. Step 4: Create false paths Create false paths branching from the main path. Include dead ends and paths that circle back on themselves. Step 5: Draw the maze walls Use the pen to trace over all line segments in the grid that do not have a path going through them. These are your maze walls. Step 6: Erase the pencil Erase all other pencil lines. You will be left with your finished maze. Step 7: Make copies Make photocopies of your maze for your family and friends to solve. Keep your original clean so you can use it again. Did You Know? Did you know? Mazes have been used since the early twentieth century to study learning and memory in rats.
