Activities for A-MAZE-ING life skills
Children aged 3 to 5 years often love to draw and create. Many parents and teachers appreciate and understand the value in using dot-to-dot or maze based activities to assist children in strengthening their fine motor and visual tracking skills.
But – what’s even more amazing is that with just a little bit of adjustment and tweaking, these mazes can actually do a whole lot more for the developing brain.
The benefits of mazes
The following are just a few of the benefits of introducing mazes that:
- Build confidence
- Help a child to control their pencil
- Provide a stepping stone to writing
- Can be made more fun with colored crayons and highlighters
We have created mazes that are specifically designed to emulate the shapes that exist in the letters and numbers that create an even deeper learning experience for a child.
These mazes also offer pictures of animals that start with the beginning sound of the letter; ‘s’ for ‘snake’ for example. Children already have the capacity to build on language skills and by integrating these learning experiences, they will be mastering their writing skills and developing their knowledge of sounds, shapes and letters in no time!
