Paper Plate Maze STEM Challenge

STEM for Kids: Paper Plate Maze

What child doesn’t like mazes? They can be found at farms during Halloween time, in the dollar section in travel booklets or even in an Arcade. For this activity, kids can create their own maze – making it as easy or twisty as they want. Using different materials for the maze makes this the perfect STEM experiment!

Note: this activity could possibly use a hot glue gun, in which case should be done by an adult.
