Maze Number 107: "Happy New Year”

Maze Number 107: "Happy New Year".  A printable holiday word maze.

It’s a word maze, it’s a holiday maze, it’s both!  I drew a maze in honor of the upcoming new year.  It’s probably the largest word maze I’ve made so far.  Coincidently, the second longest is also a holiday maze (see Number 30: "Ho, Ho, Ho").

Anyway, there are two ways to “start” and two ways to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 106: Snow Man

Maze Number 106: Snow Man.  A printable Christmas maze.

Here’s the third Christmas maze (see the second and first).  This time it’s a snowman, at least it is suppose to be one.  I started by drawing the shape of a snowman and drawing the maze around it.  It kind of looks like an alien snowman.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 105: Oh, Christmas Tree

Maze Number 105: Oh, Christmas Tree.  A printable christmas shape maze.

Continuing on with the holiday mazes, this one is made in the shape of a Christmas tree.  It’s one of my favorite things about Christmas and the subject of a cute Christmas song, so why not make it a maze?  You “start” at the trunk, and work your way up to the star at the top.  It was difficult getting the star to look right, but it seems to work.

Anyway, there is two ways to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 104: Ornament

Maze Number 104: Ornament.  An ornament shaped printable Christmas maze.

Being December and all, I decided to make the next few mazes Christmas themed.  The first of which is this red ornament shaped maze. 

I think it would be really fun to print out a bunch of them on cardstock and actually hang them on a Christmas tree, or maybe give them away.  If anyone actually tries this, pretty please send me a photo of it.  I would love to share it here.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 103: Donut

Maze Number 103: Donut

I started to draw this maze after buying a dozen donuts.  My favorite are plain glazed donuts by the way.  They are delicious, and as you can see they are very inspiring.  The easy part was deciding where the “start” should be.  The hard part was adding the “finish” and of course keeping it a near perfect circle. 

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 102: "Pop"

Maze Number 102: "Pop"

At last, another word maze.  For this one I went with the word “pop”, such a fun word.  And an easy one for drawing mazes.  Well, mostly easy.

Anyway, there is two ways to “start” and just one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 101: Bus Pass

Maze Number 101: Bus Pass

I started this maze by simply tracing my bus pass and drawing the maze in it.  A relatively simple maze, quite expected too.  I ride the bus and train almost everyday, so it’s only natural for me to eventually draw related mazes.  Though it probably would have made more sense to make ones shaped like buses instead of bus fare.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 100: One Hundred

Maze Number 100: One Hundred.  The 100th maze drawn!

It’s easy to see how this maze got it’s name.  Since it is the 100th maze I’ve drawn for this blog (except for the title, blog button, etc.), I decided to make it “100”.  I wrote down “100” and drew the maze around it.  Now just wait until I get to 200.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 99: Takoyaki

Maze Number 99: Takoyaki

For this maze, I started by drawing a weird wavy line which became the “start”.  Something about it reminds me of an octopus, an octopus sitting deep inside a ball thing.  This reminds me of Takoyaki.  It is basically chopped up octopus, covered with a batter and fried into a ball shape treat.  It’s not something I would personally eat, but I’ve always found it interesting.

Anyway, there is one way to “start” and just one way to “finish”.

Maze Number 98: Changed My Mind

Maze Number 98: Changed My Mind

For this maze, I started to draw another letter maze, but decided I just didn’t feel like it.  I erased some of the lines I had drawn and use the rest to start this maze.  Sometimes you just have to go with your feelings.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and two ways to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 97: Peas

Maze Number 97: Peas

This maze gets it’s name from both a vegetable and letter.  The shape of the “finish” reminds me of a pea pod, and the shape of the “start” just looks kind of like the letter “P”.  So just a pair of “P’s”. :)

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 96: Silky

 

Maze Number 96: Silky

This maze, strange as it sounds, gets it’s name from a cartoon character.  The paths drawn around the “start” remind me of a silk worm, specifically the alien silk worm named Silky on the Cartoon Network show, Teen Titans Go.  It’s probably about time I started drawing cartoon mazes.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and two ways to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 95: Crumbs

Maze Number 95: Crumbs

I spend a lot of time drawing my mazes at work while in the break room.  While drawing this maze, someone had a bag of cheese puffs nearby.  I hadn’t notice that there was several crumbs from it on the table, until I saw some of the crumbs (and grease) on my paper.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 94: Paw Print

Maze Number 94: Paw Print

In the past, I made a hand print maze, so why not a paw print maze?  The best part of this is the toes for the “starts”.

Anyway, there are four ways to “start” and just one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 93: Serenity

Maze Number 93: Serenity

While drawing this maze, I was thinking about one of the reasons why I draw mazes and why many people enjoy things like doodling and coloring.  To relax. 

Drawing and coloring are great ways to relieve stress.  The flow of my pencil and pens is very soothing and serene, hence the name.  One would hope that solving my mazes is just as calming.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 92: The Letter "D"

Maze Number 92: The Letter "D"

Continuing with the alphabet mazes, here is the letter “D”.  I think the lower case “d” came out a little better the the upper case “D”.  What do you think?

Maze Number 91: Don't Bother Me

 

Maze Number 91: Don't Bother Me

It’s a little strange how this maze got it’s name.  I frequently draw while waiting for the train.  One evening I was doing just that, and some guy suddenly started trying to talk to me.  Normally I am extremely shy, plus I really didn’t feel like talking to anyone let alone a perfect stranger especially since I was trying to finish up this maze. 

The fact that I was drawing something only seemed to make this guy more interested in trying to talk to me.  I know I should be flattered that he thought my mazes were cool and all that.  But still, it made me want to scream out, “can’t you see I am trying to do something here?!”

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and one way “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 90: Cello

While drawing this maze, I started to think that the shape looked like a cello.  Yep, I’m starting to see musical instruments in my pink maze doodles.

Maze Number 89: Flipped

 

Maze Number 89: Flipped

With this maze, I wanted to make something small but tricky to solve.  That led to multiple “starts” and “finishes” that ended up looking the same except the “finishes” are flipped to the side.  See where the name came from now?

Anyway, there are two ways to “start” and two ways to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 88: Teddy Ears

 

Maze Number 88: Teddy Ears

This little maze was named for the “finishes”.  They kind of look like ears on a bear, very wide set ears anyway.  I guess that would make the “start” the nose.  But cute ears on a bear means teddy bear in my mind.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and two ways to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 87: ???

 

Maze Number 87: ???

Here is another maze that started out from a squiggly line and turned into something more.  What I can’t say because it is also another maze that for the life of me I could not think of a name.  Any ideas?

Maze Number 86: Finger Tips

Maze Number 86: Finger Tips

I started this maze by tracing my finger tips, then drawing around them.  The odd looking points come from my finger nails, they may need trimming.

Maze Number 85: Goldfish

Maze Number 85: Goldfish

I was inspired to draw this maze by a bag of goldfish crackers that was sitting on the counter.  A cracker inspired maze, that’s right.  Hey, goldfish are cute and so is this maze.

Maze Number 84: The Letter "C"

Maze Number 84: The Letter "C"

Continuing with the alphabet mazes, here’s the letter “C”.  Started by drawing an uppercase and a lower case “C” and drawing the maze around them.  Sadly the letters aren’t as easy to see as with other letter mazes.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 83: The Little Elf

I started this maze by drawing two squiggly lines in the center.  Something about the shape reminded me of an elf or gnome, hence the name.

Maze Number 82: Birdy

 

Maze Number 82: Birdy

I realized that although I have drawn several animal mazes, none of them were of any birds.  This is bad, because I really like birds of all kinds.  So I whipped up this cute little bird maze, just for starters of course.  There will naturally be more birds maze in the future, harder ones too. 

For now we have a baby birdy.  The “start” is at the beak but the “finish” almost ended up somewhere else.  I decided it was best to put it at the wing instead.

Anyway, just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 81: The Letter B

 

Maze Number 81: The Letter B

Last maze was the letter “A”, now this one naturally is the letter “B”.  I was going to going to draw it with a “start” in both the upper case and lower case “B”, but my pencil has a mind of its own. 

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 80: The Letter A

 

Maze Number 80: The Letter A

While drawing all these word mazes, I thought it would be fun to make some of letters of the alphabet.  Makes sense right, it also makes sense to start with the first letter of the alphabet.  The letter “A”.  It also makes sense because my name starts with an “A”.  Who would want mazes of their initials?

I had originally planned on making it just as a capital “A”, but that didn’t leave much space to really fill out the maze.  The result would have been a really cool letter, but a really dull maze.  So upper case and lower case for a better maze, though it is still a pretty easy one.  Perfect for young children actually, especially one learning their ABCs.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 79: “Okay”

 

Maze Number 79: “Okay”

That’s right, it another word maze!  The word “okay” is strangely a favorite of mine, so I had to make a maze with it.  It was a particularly difficult to draw around the “y”, but I think it worked out mostly okay. 

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 78: Crisscross

Maze Number 78: Crisscross

For this maze, I started by drawing crisscrossing lines across the paper.  Then I drew the maze around them.  Gives it a nice effect I think.  I kind of think the top looks a lot like a fox head though.  Now there’s an idea for a maze.

Anyway, there is one way to “start” and just one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 77: Gummy Star

Maze Number 77: Gummy Star

I realized I have surprisingly never drawn a star-shaped maze, so I decided to give it a try.  This star ended up a little wiggly which reminded me of gummy candies.  So it’s like gummy star candy, it works right?

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 76: “Hi”

Maze Number 76: "Hi".  A printable pink word maze.

Continuing on from last week, we have another word maze that also happens to be a greeting.  This time I used the word “Hi” or specifically “HI”.  I found that an upper cased “i” is easier to work with when it comes to drawing mazes.  Strange.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 75: “Hey”

Maze Number 75: "Hey"

It has been a while since I’ve done any word mazes (see Number 38: "Ho Ho Ho"), so I thought it’d be fun to do a couple more.  I simply wrote the word “Hey” and drew the maze around it.  The “H” was a bit tricky and the “e” almost disappeared on me.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and just one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 74: Bottle Print

Maze Number 74: Bottle Print

I started this maze by grabbing a water bottle and tracing the bottom, a Dazani bottle in case you’re wondering.  I then just made the maze in the “circle”.  Came out well I think.  Maybe I should try more bottles.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and just one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 73: Spider

Maze Number 73: Spider

Not too hard to see how this maze got it’s name.  I have made mazes for other bugs before (see Number 47: Flutter and Number 39: Beetle), so I thought a spider maze was long over due.  The hardest part was getting the legs to look like legs.

Anyway, just one way to “start” and one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 72: Cauliflower

Maze Number 72: Cauliflower

I drew this maze a little before lunch time, so I guess I was a little hungry while drawing.  Plus I need to eat more veggies, so that might explain the name for this maze.  Cauliflower was the first thing that popped into my head and so it will stay.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and two ways to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 71: Lunch Box

Maze Number 71: Lunch Box

This maze was started literally by lunch.  I grabbed a food container from lunch and traced it, then went on from there. 

I also drew a line diagonally, like cutting a sandwich in half.  That’s how I ended up with two mazes in one.  It’s a lot like one of my other food related mazes (see Number 10: Grilled Cheese).

Anyway, each has just one way to “start” and two ways to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Maze Number 70: No Name

 

Maze Number 70

Another maze that is lacking a name.  It started from a tiny squiggle and ended up much more, but I can’t seem to think of a good name.  Any ideas?

Number 69: Braiding

Maze Number 69: Braiding

I starting drawing this maze from the center.  Just making little diagonal loops or whatever you’d call them.  They reminded me of braids, I do tend to braid my hair a lot so I naturally made the connection.

Anyway, just one way to “start” and just one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Number 68: Sour Rainbow

Maze Number 68: Sour Rainbow

The name for this maze is probably a little unusual.  I started the drawing the multiple pathways from the “start” and the way they looked reminded me of one of the the candies we sell at the store I work at.  It’s a sour candy that comes in rainbow colored strips, so I went with Sour Rainbow.

Anyway, there is one way to “start” and two ways to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Number 67: Heart to Heart

 

Maze Number 67: Heart to Heart

Since Valentine’s Day is nearly here I made a bonus maze this week.  I started this maze by just drawing four hearts together.  Each heart became an individual maze.  It was a fun one to draw, let’s hope it’s just as much fun to solve.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” each time and one way “finish”.  Enjoy!

Number 66: Got Heart?

 

Number 66: Got Heart?

Yes, in honor of Valentine’s Day I made a heart maze.  It wasn’t as easy expected, try to draw a decent maze while keeping it a recognizable heart shape.

Number 65: Rapunzel

 

Number 65: Rapunzel

This maze started from a long squiggly line that kind of reminded me of hair.  Really, really long hair growing from the “start”.  What fairy tale makes you think hair?  Rapunzel.  So it’s like a maze of hair, don’t get tangled.

Anyways, there is one way to “start” and two ways to “finish”.  Enjoy?

Number 64: Wishbone

Maze Number 64: Wishbone

Where the name for this maze comes from should be obvious.  The way the path goes around the “start” looks similar to a wishbone shape to me.  Either that or a pug’s nose, but I liked wish bone better.

Anyway, there is just one way to “start” and two ways to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Number 63: Blossom

Maze Number 63: Blossom

For this maze, I got the idea to split the path immediately at the “start”.  Not actually a new technique, but in this case is caused the paths to go repeatedly back and forth in a way that reminded me of a rose bud blooming or blossoming.

Anyway, only one way to “start” with two ways to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Number 62: Jellyfish

Maze Number 62: Jellyfish

This maze started just by drawing a large “u” shape that got turned upside down.  This shape became the “start” and greatly resembles a jellyfish to me.  Specifically a certain jellyfish from an anime series I’ve watch before, Princess Jellyfish.

Anyways, there is just one way to “start” and four different ways to “finish”.  Enjoy!

Number 61: Monster Face

Maze Number 61: Monster Face

Another squiggle maze, with an unusual name.  I couldn’t think of a good name for this one, so I showed it to a friend of mine.  It seemed to remind her of a cyclops or something,  The “start” looked liked the eye, the “finish” like a mouth, etc.  So basically it’s a monster’s face.

Anyway, just one way to “start” and only one way to “finish”.  Enjoy!
