Whimsical Labyrinths

Since the beginning of documented civilization, labyrinths and spiral patterns have been found everywhere ancient indigenous people have lived and traveled.  Modern labyrinths also appear on the Internet where people meet virtually as well as in the physical world in churches, recreation areas, schools and even prisons.

These labyrinth images are a mixture of traditional labyrinth design examples based upon historic landmarks and whimsical designs of my own creation. Sometimes I find one of my own color book images are perfectly suitable for fun mazes or dot-to-dot puzzles.


To make real labyrinths, print a favorite labyrinth image and use it as a pattern to walk an outdoor labyrinth path.  Use washable finger paints, color crayons or markers to color labyrinths on extra large paper sheets such as easel pad papers. Go outside in the sunlight and make a chalk line labyrinth in the concrete driveway or create beautiful decorative landscape additions with stepping stone labyrinths in the lawn (make sure no lawnmower will ever to go over the area and hit the rocks). Use those snow shovels and shoes to shovel and tramp out a labyrinth in the freshly fallen blanket of snow. Get up early before the kids find out there's new snow to trample.
