Why Mazes Are Fantastic for Kids
Mazes might look simple but these printable activities have many benefits for kids. Plus, mazes are fun challenges that strengthen growth mindset skills. A few of the benefits of mazes for kids include:
- Fine motor skills practice
- Boost to self-confidence
- Handwriting practice (for pre-writers and early writers)
If you’re planning a Valentine’s Day party for kids or just want some open-and-go activities to enjoy around the holiday, you’ll love these free Valentine’s Day mazes 🙂
In our homeschool, we celebrate Valentine’s Day with a special holiday poetry teatime. I like to have a variety of activities for my five boys (ages 5-17). My youngest boy (Xman) enjoys using mazes like these holiday-themed ones as his older brothers work on activities like Crack the Code and Word Scramble.
Xman likes to change things up when he solves these mazes. Instead of making multiple copies, I laminate each maze for durability and to be reused.
Also, Xman enjoys using playdough snakes for these mazes and I find the laminating makes that experience more enjoyable. (This idea is great if you’re using these Valentine’s Day mazes at a learning station in your class or homeschool co-op!).
Boost the Learning Fun with Creative Ways for Using Valentine’s Day Mazes
Pump up the learning fun with these mazes with Valentine’s Day themes using any or all of these ideas:
- Provide your kids with Valentine’s Day or fun writing utensils.
- Encourage your kids to use a finger to trace the maze prior to solving them.
- Laminate the mazes for durability and to be reused. This step also makes using playdough or dry-erase markers a great option. (Don’t have a laminator or laminating pouches? Pop a maze into a dry erase sleeve.)
- Valentine’s Day stickers or stamps are great ways to decorate the mazes.
- Have your child quietly talk through how they are solving the maze. Why did they pick one direction over another?
- For the page with 5 different simple mazes, challenge your child to practice slow and fast finger control. Demonstrate by moving your finger through the maze in an exaggerated slow motion. Then, increase the speed and zoom through.
