Set It Up

For this activity you will need:




Any writing tool – crayon, pencil, etc

Optional: Laminator and dry erase markers if planning to use in a center

Below are the supplies I use personally at home. After doing so many printable activities, I’ve found that it’s most helpful to always have these basic supplies on hand.

If you don’t have the materials needed, don’t sweat! You can get it delivered to your doorstep really quickly with Amazon Prime. You can get a 30-day free trial here.

Start It Up

There are 3 mazes that would be suitable for preschool up to first grade.

  • A school bus making its way to school

  • A schoolgirl going to school with a crossing guard. This one has a second version with a question or talking topic about crossing the road safely.

  • A smart cookie finding their way to school – for those of you who prefer more imaginative centers.

All the maze paths are different so you can choose one of the 3 or all 3 to print and play. So easy!
