We went to a corn maze last weekend with Monkey's Aunts & Uncles (the local ones, anyway).
It's possible to get quite lost in the corn. Letting Monkey choose what direction you're going to go at each intersection is a good way to do it. Although he did find the entrance again one time! (Us big kids found it twice more, I think.)
They told us that our corn maze was the shape of a tractor. I don't think that I ever figured out how that worked.
It certainly wasn't a whole lot of help in finding the way out!
Of course, a little boy has to stop and look at the rocks he finds.
And, having recently discovered his pockets, they should be filled with rocks!
They had hosted a scavenger hunt in the maze a few days before, and had fun shaped paper punches here and there. Monkey had a good look at each one. We found feet, a fish, a star, a lizard, and at least one more that I can't remember any more.
It took us about 30-45 minutes to solve the maze.
It probably would have taken less time had we gotten to the serious business of solving it a bit quicker, but we were having too much fun.
We did get there eventually.
