Step 1: Outline

Draw a square. Erase two wholes in it. I put mine in the corners as shown in the picture. This will be your entrance and exit.

Step 2: Step 2

Draw another square inside the first square. Erase more holes in that square. I made 3 holes in mine.

Step 3: Step 3

Draw more and more squares inside eachother. Yours should look pretty close to mine, other than the holes.

Step 4: Different Shapes

Now you can draw different shapes inside that square. Erase holes in them too.

Step 5: Step 5

Fill those in with squares. Erase holes in those too.

Step 6: Highlight Your Route

Figure out where you want the only way through the maze to be. I highlighted mine.

Step 7: Step 7

Now start drawing lines to close off paths other than the way through.

Step 8: Finish

Finish drawing lines. You may have had to erase some more holes to make the maze more comfusing. Make sure there are no other ways through the maze. If there are, close it off with a line.

Step 9: All Done!

If you chose to highlight your route, erase the highlight. You have your very own maze now! Well... What are you waiting for? GO SHOW IT OFF!

Wouldn't you also want to check the maze to make as many of the paths accessbile as possible? This would entail erasing more lines.
turning right doesnt work

Where is the part where you add a wall somewhere in the middle that makes it impossible to solve and you hand it out to bug other people/people who don't clean the microwave out when they make a mess in it...
