Create an underwater-inspired maze with this fun activity.
In Disney·Pixar’s Finding Dory, Bailey helps guide Dory through the pipes of the Marine Life Institute by using his sonar skills. Recreate a similar scene with this activity and help your kids navigate their way through the cardboard tunnels in this fun game.
- Cardboard boxes
- Blue paint
- Yellow paint
- Printer (for the seaweed printables)
Collect and build your boxes
Plan your tunnel directions and lay the boxes next to each other
Cut through the boxes you want your child to go through (remember to leave a border for strength)
Now it’s time for the fun part – painting! Help your kids to paint the yellow sand at the bottom of the boxes with a curved line
Paint the rest of the boxes with blue paint for the sea
Print out your seaweed and decorate your tunnels by gluing to the outside of the newly painted boxes
Cut some holes in the top of the boxes so your kids can stick their heads out
Check your tunnels to make sure they all work okay, and use tape to strengthen the joints
Now the maze is ready for your kids to start exploring! As a fun game, why not try calling instructions through the holes to help guide your kids to the exit?
