  • Step 1
    Gridded paper is terrific for drawing mazes. For a simple maze, use 4x4 grid paper. For a more complex maze, use 8x8 grid paper. With a pencil, draw a start and finish box for your maze on a piece of grid paper. Draw a path from the start box to the finish box. Leave some spaces open for gateways to more paths.

  • Step 2
    Trace over the path with a black pen or fine point marker.

  • Step 3
    Using the open spaces, pencil in more paths, making sure they finish in dead ends.

  • Step 4
    Continue filling the open spaces with more paths.

  • Step 5
    Trace over the false paths with the pen or marker. Your maze is now ready to solve!

  • Step 6
    Make a photocopy and use a brightly colored marker to fill in the solution path.
