Are mazes just for fun?
Of course, many children love mazes so it’s easy to look at them as something you are offering your children just to have fun.
However, there are benefits to having children work on completing mazes.
First of all, they provide fine motor practice. Children must work to keep their pencil within the lines. This can be a challenge for some but is helpful when you are working to help children build up those muscles.
Also, mazes provide problem solving practice. As mazes become more difficult, children are working to predict what will happen next. They are also trying out different scenarios in their head.
