DIY Fun Maze Craft & Game for Kids



Crafts are one of my very favorite things to do with my kids. If you’ve been a reader for a while you’ll know that. We’ve done some pretty amazing crafts. Recently, it’s been tough to think up unique and different ideas to do that will not only keep my kids interested but that will have a place in the house and not end up in the trash.

Games are another favorite of everyone in our house. We love family game nights, and my kids love playing games together when going outside isn’t an option and although we’ve had a pretty mild winter thus far, we are expecting that to change in the next few days.

What better way to spend the cold winter days than making and playing your own games? Check out this fun DIY Maze Craft and Game for kids!
