Drinking Straw Maze Toy Craft

Pin It
This is a fabulous idea to make your very own drinking straw maze toy craft. Use straws to create a maze in a box lid and roll a marble through the maze. You can make small or big mazes. Hours of fun.

Materials:

  • box lid
  • drinking straws
  • construction paper(optional)
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • glue
  • marble

Directions:

  1. Draw a simple maze design in pencil on the inside of your box lid. If desired, you can cut and paste a piece of construction paper into your lid beforehand to give your maze a color background, but this step is optional.
  2. Cut straws to match each line in your maze.
  3. Pipe glue on the lines and put on the straws. Allow to dry.
  4. Use a marble and roll through the maze.

  2. Love this project....as an OT student, I was going to use a marble and found that most preschools do not allow due to a choking hazard...wonder if this would be safer with a gumball for older kids?
