Why Easy Maze Worksheets for Kids are So Great
Easy maze worksheets teach kids so many things in a playful way:
- Cause and effect thinking – how one decision early in the maze solution could completely change the outcome.
- Persistence – sometimes solving a maze doesn’t come easy and preschoolers can learn that sticking with a problem is worth it!
- Pencil skills – or crayon skills! Fine motor skills are really important to start developing by Kindergarten level in a playful way so that preschoolers develop the strength and coordination to hold a pencil for schoolwork.
- Eye-hand coordination – preschoolers will learn how they will see the path the pencil should take them through the maze and then make it happen with their hand!
The Printable Space Mazes Pack Includes
- 4 pages with easy mazes (with a star, Saturn, rocket and the moon).
- 4 pages with advanced mazes to solve.
We originally assumed that the easy maze versions would work best for preschool level and the more advanced mazes would be better for kindergarten level. What has been fun is to see that is not generally how our readers have been using them!
Often both versions of the same maze are printed off and when the child (no matter if preschool or kindergarten) completes it, they go on to the more advanced maze.
Our readers are smart!
The printable maze pdf version I have made for this article is in black and white which is a more printer friendly alternative.

The more difficult mazes are actually shown above. These hard mazes aren’t impossible, but will make older children work on their problem solving skills a little harder.
A challenging maze is a fun way to exercise the brain as they have to go through more lines! Try not to hit a dead end!
Have young children? Younger children may not do so well with the more difficult maze printables. They’re not all depicted above, but the printables with less lines are perfect for smaller kids.
We have multiple difficulty levels so kids of all ages can do them. Plus, these themed mazes are all a ton of fun.
Make Your Maze pdf Reusable
Be sure to laminate these so your kids can use them over and over again. They make easy car & waiting room activities for preschoolers and kindergartners.
Your young learner can practice different mazes everyday until they are able to do all levels of difficulty.
