We LOVE printables around here and lately Mr. Printables has been our “go to” for printables. If you’re like me you might get tired of printing them over and over. Especially things like mazes that you get one use out of before you can’t use it again. Here are 2 fun ways that you can reuse those printables over and over!
This idea is so simple but is a great way to play with printables over and over or while traveling. You’ll need a piece of cardboard and a page protector glued to one side. Your printables of choice (this maze is from Mr. Printables) a strong magnet and a paper clip (always watch kids around small objects like magnets as they are very dangerous if swallowed).
Slip your printable maze into the page protector and place the paper clip on top
Use the magnet underneath to guide the paper clip through the maze
You could glue a handdrawn character or print out one to the paper clip and make it more 3D using this idea
Another way to reuse your printables even beyond mazes is to use the same setup with the page protector but just use dry erase markers on the top.
It can easily be wiped off again and again.
