Do you think your Valentine is a-MAZE-ing? What better way to let them know how MARBLE-ous you think they are than with a gigantic heart shaped marble maze?!!!

Start with:

  • Cardboard
  • Cardstock (same color as paint)
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Glue or Glue Gun
  • Box Cutter or Utility Knife
  • Pencil
  • Single Hole Punch
  • String
  • Round Wooden Bead

Create it!

Step 1: From cardboard, cut out large heart.

Step 2: Paint cardboard heart and allow to dry.

Step 3: Draw maze design in pencil on large heart.

Step 4: Score pencil design with box cutter or utility knife. (Adults handle this part!)

Step 5: Cut 2 inch by 11 inch strips from heavy cardstock.

Step 6: Fold 1/3 of strip and glue to edges of the heart - all the way around the outside edge.

Step 7: Cut 1 inch by 11 inch strips of cardstock and fit into the scored maze lines.

Step 8: Punch a hole on edges of heart maze. Tie a string through with the wooden bead attached to keep the "marble" with the maze.

This is a really large Valentine but such a fun surprise for a special day - if you can keep it a secret until then!!!
