Week 38: Practice Problem Solving with Mazes!
Mazes are great for teaching kids problem solving skills. They need to plan ahead, come up with different strategies, and keep different paths in their head. As a bonus, mazes are also great hand-eye coordination and handwriting practice!
The great thing about the mazes from The Trip Clip is that you can make them as easy or as difficult as you like. Younger kids can practice their writing and problem solving skills just like older ones can. And a completely new maze is generated every time you refresh the page, so you can print an endless supply of mazes for your kids!
These also work great when paired with a kid-sized clipboard from The Trip Clip.
The 4-color click-pen can be great for encouraging your kids to improve their skill with the mazes. Each time your child gets stuck, have them switch pen colors and go back to the last decision point. If theycan do it all in a single color (no mistakes), they’re an expert! If theyneed all 4 pen colors before they find the right path, challenge themto do the next one with just 3 colors.
This is a great way to help your kids work on improving their problem solving skills by getting them to work on beating their own best score. They’ll gain confidence too!
