A football maze is a great gross motor movement activity to keep kids active. Perfect for small kids like toddlers and preschoolers at home.
Stuck at home with kids day number… who knows? It seems it’s been ages. So we played on the football maze inside our house. (Now the isolation has started creeping up on me but doing what I can to keep kids busy.)
We made a football maze on our terrace using tape. That’s all you need, plus scissors.
It took me start to finish all of 20 minutes to set up a maze pattern on the floor.
We already had lines on the floor to work around but I don’t think creating a simple maze should be very difficult even otherwise.
Just make a rectangle and keep two opposite sides open.
Then put random shorter lines inside to create blockage.
Here’s what I made.
The game didn’t go very well in the beginning, but we laughed and ohh-ed and ahh-ed a lot.
…Before my son figured out how to reach the cross at the end of this football maze.
I took my husband on video call to show him (he’s posted away, and now none of us can travel here or there because of the lockdown) how Musa is playing and I felt he was sad recalling how they used to play in the football court together. ='(
Musa finally made it to the end line.
