Stem – The Cheese Maze Challenge

Looking for an engaging STEM activity for kids? Try this magnetic maze challenge! All you need are some paperclips, magnets, paper plate, and a free printable maze. Explain that the goal is to guide the cheese through the maze to the finish line using only the magnetic power. As they move their cheese along the maze paths, they’ll work on spatial reasoning skills as well as learn about magnetic forces. Encourage problem solving when they come to dead ends or intersections. Will rotating the magnet help pull the cheese in another direction? Experiment together until they find the right path. Once finished, let the kids race against each other or take turns solving mazes of increasing difficulty. This sensory-based activity provides a fun way for children to explore STEM concepts while letting their imagination run wild!
