Who doesn’t love a maze?! Who doesn’t love dot stickers?
Basically hitting it out of the activities ball park with this Dot Sticker Maze.
Actually, as I came up with this idea for my 4-year-old, I laughed – “How have we never done this?!”

This is why dot stickers are life.
Dot stickers may just be my favorite activity supply.
I make no apologies for this and share it pretty openly actually.
Dot stickers are versatile, they’re easy to use, and they have a wide age range of kids who can totally get into them.

- DOT STICKERS (there are THE ones)
- White butcher paper
- Painter’s Tape
- Do-A-Dot markers or other washable markers
I started by rolling out my beloved butcher paper and taping it to the wall – love me some painter’s tape for being wall safe.
I grabbed the Do-a-Dots because they make such a thick and vibrant line. I knew it would show up easier in photos and for my daughter (#realbloggersecrets).
This isn’t a traditional maze more like a “follow the lines” activity but maze rolls off the tongue a lot better.
I ran each color from one side of the paper to the next and overlapped them in spots just for a little extra maze like element.

Don’t forget the most important trick with stickers!
You gotta remove the inner white paper first.
I KNOW RIGHT?!
Makes stickers 150 million times easier to peel for kids – I’m really not exaggerating here (lol).
Without the white part, I’ve had children as young as 16 months be successful with peeling stickers. Crazy right?! Game changer.
My daughter LOVED dot sticker maze.
We do a lot of sticker activities around here because they are my daughter’s total niche but this one really really resonated with her.
I loved watching her sorting the colors, visually discriminating between line paths, and using her fine motor skills to make it all happen.
Look at her fingers work, the arm strength, the coordination to do it all.
Yes, it’s just some dot stickers but PEOPLE! It’s so much more.
Dot sticker maze was an absolute gem!
What a fantastic activity combining two of the best parts of childhood: stickers and mazes.
You’ve gotta try this.
When will you make a dot sticker maze?
