Nanny Anita’s Marble Fabric Maze Game For Kids

I will start by saying that making these fabric mazes does require a fair amount of input and may sound complicated.They aren’t and little ones really love them. I decided to sew my mazes together with my new sewing machine. If you don’t have a sewing machine or don’t want to sew then you could use a glue (fabric glue would work best) to make them.

These mazes are a wonderful addition to any busy bag collection. So far we have 3 different mazes of different sizes and difficulty, and I hope to make lots more of them. You don’t even have to spend any money on materials for these as you can upcycle any old clothes and beads that you have lying around.

Make sure you follow my busy bag board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

To make your own fabric maze you will need:

  • Fabric
  • Marble or small bead
  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Glue or sewing machine

On a piece of paper draw out your maze design.

Copy that design onto one side of your fabric. If you are using glue, then draw the design onto the inside of your fabric. If you are using a sewing machine then draw the design onto the outside of the fabric.

Gluing – go over the design with a thin line of glue, remember that when you stick the other piece of fabric on top the glue will spread out slightly, so make sure you leave enough space for the bead/marble to go through.

Sewing – sew the seams first on the reverse (but leave a gap so that you can turn the fabric back through so that it is the right way). Then sew your pattern, add your marble then hand stick that gap you left closed.

Remember to leave a gap to put your marble/bead into the maze before gluing/sewing it shut. When I gave them to my eldest charge to try he loved them and wanted to carry on playing with them, he kept asking for more of them! So I better get on with designing some!
