I went with Alexa's class to the local Corn Maze on her field trip. The moms gathered outside the classroom waiting to depart. As we waited we began talking about who had been to a maze before, who was directionally challenged and who was nervous about getting lost with their group.
Some moms had gotten online and studied the maze ahead of time. Every year they change the Corn Maze and this year it was an owl. Can you believe that I grew up in Iowa and I don't remember ever going through a corn maze. My husband will be the first to raise his hand and say his wife is directionally challenged. So yes I did wonder how well I would help the kids navigate through the owl corn maze.
The kids were super excited to head into the maze.
We had to find 8 different spots through the Maze to find the answers on their sheets. We had one boy who was great with directions. I actually figured out how to navigate the map and sometimes I think it was just good luck that we found some of the stop points.
The kids were bound and determine to find the treasure chest. If they did they got a free treat from the consession stand at the end. One of the groups from Alexa's class found the treasure chest and gave us a little clue. The kids searched and searched and squeeled with delight when they found the treasure chest.
The kids had a blast at the corn maze!
