Inside: Four fun mazes are included in this free alphabet mazes printable. Alphabet mazes are low prep, simple to play and make a great alphabet learning resource for literacy centers.
I am so please with how gorgeous these nature themed alphabet mazes turned out. They tie in beautifully with a range of classroom themes – Spring, nature, Earth Day and gardening to name just a few – and they can also stand alone as a lovely alphabet learning game to be used at school or home with preschoolers through to first and second graders.
Pair this resource with the following alphabet activities and you’ll have the start of a great early literacy center for school or home – Alphabet Memory Matching Card Game, Printable Letter Sound Matching Game and Alphabet Scavenger Hunt Printable.
To get started with this set of alphabet mazes you will need to download and print a copy – the instructions for which can be found at the bottom of this post.
You will also need a set of small manipulatives for children to use to cover each letter of the alphabet in the maze. We used mini, wooden flower beads in the photo above and flower buttons in the image below. Alternatively, you could use clear gemstones, mini erasers, colorful buttons, plastic beads or balls of playdough.
How to Complete an Alphabet Maze
To complete an alphabet letter maze, the child starts by locating the letter A at the starting point of the individual maze. They cover the A with a gemstone, button, or whatever manipulative you are using.
They then find the letter B alongside the A, then C, then D, etc, finding and covering each letter of the alphabet in order to move through the maze, all the way from A through to Z.
