Why a String Laser Maze?

In the movies, you often see spies go through extreme obstacle courses to get where they need to go. In this activity, we replace lasers with string to simulate a safe, fun spy mission for your kids.

To reach the treasure, your kids will not only have to think their way through the maze, but also their bodies will get a great workout. How many shapes can they bend their bodies into as they weave through the web of laser string?

You’ll have so much fun watching them, you’ll want to try it yourself.

Why Surprise Them With a Stringing?

Picture this: You arrive home from school or work or practice or wherever you’ve been, open your front door and find that your house is full of string. It zigzags everywhere: upstairs, downstairs, over doors and under furniture. Every room is a maze of multicolored web.

And then you’re handed one end of the string and told that if you follow it in all its twists and turns, you’ll find a prize.

Sounds pretty cool, huh? THAT is a stringing and your kids will love it!

You’ll love it too, because it’s just as much fun to set up the string as it is to follow it to the end. Your prize will be the looks of surprise and glee you’ll see on their faces.
