A-mazing!

In between summer busy-ness lots of active, outdoor adventures, swimming, running, bike-riding every kid (and their mother) needs some downtime.  When I saw this fun idea at Bookhoucrafts I thought it would be worth a try. It turned out to be worth a couple of hours of fun constructing the mazes and then playing each others.  Even after I took these photos the boys kept making more mazes.  We had everything on hand too which is a huge bonus. I found some little, round pearl beads that we used for the ball in the maze and we found that a double layer of wax sticks helped the bead not to jump the "wall"  Some of the mazes were fun with several balls. I'd highly recommend this.

That does look fun. I have seen those wax things around, but I didn't know what to do with them. Great idea!

I've got to start compiling some of these things to have on hand when I have the grandkids here.
