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

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.
