Create a Rock Maze

Is the weather getting warmer where you are? Yesterday we embraced the sun with this quick and easy STEM activity.  We grabbed some rocks and made our very own rock maze for cars!

Lately my son and I have been getting into mazes and puzzles.   So it made sense that we would take our love outside into nature.  We have a ton of rocks lying in our front yard, so this activity took very little time to set up.  I just brought out some toy cars and we were good to go!

This was a super easy activity to do.  You could go about building a maze intuitively and then see where you end up.

We first set up where our "start" and "end" points would be. Then, we got to creating and building.

At first our maze was very simple.  We essentially created a straight path from start to finish. But once our original path was finished, we added in more curves and hidden incorrect paths.
