Sometimes you just need a quick and easy activity for kids. This paper plate marble maze uses basic paper straws and glue. It’s perfect for car rides, lazy afternoons, or a quick STEM activity for school.
Paper Plate Marble Maze
When the kids are bored and you feel out of ideas, paper plates always come to the rescue. With a little imagination, paper plates can become anything kids dream.
This paper plate marble maze is easy to put together. You only need a few supplies, and kids can easily customize their own mazes. If kids want to, they can paint their paper plates in advance.
To Make This Craft You Will Need
- white paper plates
- paper straws
- tacky craft glue
- marbles or round beads
- felt tip pen
After gathering supplies, invite kids to cut the straws into shorter pieces with scissors. We enjoyed having a variety of sizes.
Show kids how to glue their straws to the paper plate to create a maze. We used tacky craft glue, but white school glue would work as well.
Creating the maze requires some planning as kids will have to decide where the start and end of their maze is. You may wish to have kids design their maze on a piece of paper first! It will be fun to see their project come to life.
When kids are done creating their mazes, it’s challenge time! Can they get their marble or wooden bead from the start to finish without dropping it? After they succeed, invite them to trade mazes with a friend.

Today we’ll finish up talking about balance and exciting needlepoint by looking at a piece I’m finishing up and talking about it.
