Drawing a maze

Easy to do at the drop of a hat, instead of putting pen to paper, put chalk to playground and get lost drawing your own labyrinth.

  • Find an open space of playground without any markings on the floor
  • Take some coloured chalk to draw with. You can use whatever colours you like, but it helps to have a mixture
  • Start by drawing the central pattern of a cross with outer corners and dots (just like in Step 1 of the picture)
  • Join the top left with the right hand side of the cross in one sweeping arch
  • Fill out the rest of the curves until your maze looks like the final diagram
  • If you’re feeling adventurous, make your maze more elaborate by making it up as you go along (with dead ends and secret hideaways)
  • When it’s ready, take turns to explore your way around with friends
