10 Mazes for Preschoolers to Help Learn to Achieve Their Dreams

Share:

 

Mazes for preschoolers, and really for all kids, are great for problem solving.

There’s no doubt about it, life is going to throw you a curve ball at some time or another. No matter what you’ve planned, life can always take you in unexpected directions.

To achieve your dream, your finish line, sometimes you have to fail before you succeed. There are roadblocks, dead ends. Sometimes you can push through, other times you’ll have to take a step back and try another direction. Mazes are a perfect example to show young kids about achieving your dreams, and problem solving to figure out what the best route will be to get you there.

Our sponsor, Monsters University is screaming this message, it is truly the theme of the movie. Mike’s dream is to become a Scarer, and even though he’s not at all scary, he’s determined to do it. He battles one obstacle after another throughout the movie to become a Scarer. He’s living a maze, running into dead ends and having to turn around to find another way to achieve his dream.

Kids can learn a lot from this movie, but the theme is probably a little over a preschooler’s head, at least mine. So we play mazes a lot to learn about achieving their dreams! It shows them to never give up, that the right path is there, they just have to keep looking to find it.

    My parents always believed in me and thought I could do anything. They were (and still are) a huge support to me.

  2. Kari O. says

    I started believing in myself by just listening to my friends and family who always tell me to shoot for my dreams!

    A good system I found out was to take a jar and decorate it (with whatever you goal is, like maybe losing weight for example) and then filling the jar with one rock when you accomplished a step towards that goal (like for the losing weight example, every day that you ate well). The more the jar was filled, the more motivated I was to keep going – and there’s always the choice of emptying the jar if you slip up on purpose (like for the losing weight example, not eating healthy, etc.)

    It works great for me!

  5. Pamela Halligan says

    My dream was to go back to college and finish my degree. I accomplished my goal with the encouragement of my family and perseverance as I took one class at a time while working full-time.

  6. Holly Storm-Burge says

    I never gave up because I knew I could do it. Confidence: Fake it ’til you make it!

    From the time I was young, I wanted to be a nurse. I never strayed from that goal and got my degree in 1974 and just renewed my RN license again at the age of 64 even though I am no longer working. I studied hard to attain that goal.

    I can remember being a child of low self-esteem thinking I’d never fall in love. I grew into a confident man and married a wonderful, beautiful woman! It just goes to show that you have to believe in yourself.

  9. says

    Well, I haven’t reached my dream yet, but I have made progress despite circumstances and I’d say what drove me was a deep desire to prove myself, working hard and always carrying along the attitude (which I was taught) to go the extra mile regardless if it’s not warranted.
