When I was in grade school, I used to draw mazes. I remember liking to do mazes, and eventually I tried making some of my own. I tried a few different techniques, but I eventually settled on what I liked to call the, “bowl of intestines” technique.
I would pass them around at school, but tell people not to write on them, because then no one else could try them. But someone always did. In desperation, I covered one with strips of tape. Lots and lots of strips of tape. I showed it to my sister and she said that dad had some wide tape in the basement.
I didn’t know that wide tape even existed. It seemed miraculous. I could cover a whole maze in 4 pieces of tape. I mounted them on pieces of cardboard and people would do them with grease pens and I could just wipe them off when they were done. Looking back on it, I should have found a page protector, but I don’t think I knew that those existed until 5th or 6th grade.
Anyway, a few months ago I thought about those mazes and decided to make a new one. I worked on it off and on for a day or two then it went into a pile of papers. I found it yesterday and finished it. If you click on the image it should take you to a pdf file. If you print the pdf file, please cover it in tape (skinny or wide, it doesn’t matter) and mount it on a piece of cardboard before you solve it. You know, for old time sake.
