Compass Rose Mazes and Back To School Sale


The Puzzle Den Compass Rose Maze #1

Today I have a treat for maze lovers!  It's a Compass Rose Maze.  The idea is that you have to follow the directions on the compass rose in each square to know which way to proceed to the next square.  Compass Rose #1 is pretty easy.

The Puzzle Den Compass Rose #2

Compass Rose #2 is a bit harder.  Just click on each image to download or print the puzzles.

So while these mazes don't end up being all that hard, it is a bit of a novelty to your standard mazes.  I hope you and your kids enjoy them!

And FYI, Teachers Pay Teachers is hosting their annual Back To School sale.  Everything in my store is automatically 20% off for August 1st and 2nd.  If you use the code BTS2017 you get an additional 5% off your order!
