LEGO activities are always fun for kids. Kids Activities Blog has released a laundry list of fun labyrinth and maze activities perfect for playtime that sneaks in a bit of learning. Maze activities practice problem solving and reasoning skills all while having lots of fun.
Build a Greek Labyrinth out of LEGOs and let Greek Myths come alive. Materials needed for this LEGO activity are LEGO bricks, a Minotaur, some string, Theseus or a figure to defend against the Minotaur like a Lion and lots of imagination. Reading Usborne's Greek Myths for Children will spark the kids imagination for this LEGO activity. Either make a random maze, or let the child copy a maze. Copying a maze is a great way to develop math skills with pattern recognition.
Once the maze is complete, add the Minotaur and various other chosen creatures and weave the string into the labyrinth. Let the child have fun reenacting the plot of the Greek Myths.
Other fun maze tips with LEGOs include using a string to aid in making the path, using a base plate and toy car to build the maze layout, or simply using maze templates published on Kids Activities Blog to recreate mazes with LEGOs.
