How to Draw a Maze

by Laura Kurtz


  • Blank piece of paper
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Ruler
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    First, use the ruler to draw a square on the paper.

    Step 2

    Next, erase two spaces on different sides of the square to make the start and finish.

    Step 3

    Draw another square inside the original square using the ruler. After the second square is drawn, erase some holes.

    Step 4

    Add a few more squares and erase holes in them. Make sure to leave room in between each square.

    Step 5

    Draw a few shapes inside the last square made to make the maze more interesting. Make sure to erase spaces in the shapes.

    Step 6

    Keep adding smaller shapes inside the shapes and erasing holes until there is no space left to draw. Don't make it too crowded, though.

    Step 7

    Decide how you want your maze to be solved. Use a pencil, but make sure you don't press to hard so you can erase.

    Step 8

    Add lines to block other paths and erase more holes if needed. Make sure when you are done to erase the desired solution of the maze.

    Step 9

    Congratulations! You have completed your drawing of a maze.
