Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED???

maze design

cardboard

clay

colors

cutter

packing tape

OHP sheet (plastic sheet)

brushes

scissors

Step 2: THE BEGINNING...

take the clay and mix it well. (the clay which I have used over here comes in two parts, we need to mix both the parts equally before using it.)

use talcum powder to avoid sticking of clay to the hand.

Step 3: PREPARING THE MAZE...

take the maze design. make a long roll of the clay and start sticking it to the maze. complete the whole maze design with clay.

Step 4: CONTINUATION...

put a second layer of clay to make it thick.

Step 5: COLORING THE MAZE....

once the clay dries, color the whole maze design with black color and highlight the edges with the white color.

Step 6: GIVING IT a BASE...

stick the whole design to the cardboard. while cutting leave some extra cardboard. fold the cardboard to form the edge of the maze. then stick a OHP sheet (plastic sheet) on top with the help of packing tape.

don't forget to keep the space at the entrance and exit of the maze in order to insert the ball.

you can make a ball out of the clay by rolling a small piece of clay or getting a ready made one.

Step 7: FINAL LOOK...

your game is ready for playing.... play and have fun....

    well....there is surely a way out...the ball is supposed to enter the maze through the opening you can see at the centre of the top...and the way out is the outlet at the bottom right
