  • Glue

Make sure the paths are wide enough for the marble you plan to use.

How to make it

  1. Glue a piece of construction paper inside a shoe box lid.

  2. Glue paper "Start" and "Finish" tabs at either end of the lid, as shown, then sketch a labyrinth of passages and dead ends.

  3. Cut plastic straws into segments and glue them over the sketched lines.

  4. To play, place a marble in the starting spot, then tilt the lid to move it through the maze. For a challenge, see who can complete the maze the fastest.
