In "Love Connects Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
Distribute mazes and pencils. Encourage participants to solve their maze. After a few minutes, invite those who have solved a maze to help someone else. When all the mazes have been solved, distribute blank paper. Invite each participant to create a maze of their own for someone else to complete. Tell them the maze they create can be simple or complex, but should be solvable (that is, there must be a path, however convoluted, from the beginning to the end). If you have time, invite the children to exchange mazes or collect and re-distribute all the mazes so each child can solve one that another child created. If you do not have time, encourage children to invite someone at home to solve the maze they created.
Invite reflection by asking questions such as:
If any participants may struggle with the small motor tasks this activity requires, have all participants work with a partner to solve and create a maze.
