Nicholas loves mazes. If he sees a maze, he must work through it. I often go online and just print mazes for him but I recently found a neat way to throw in some counting practice as well. Check out this website... www.printactivities.com.
With these mazes you start with the number one and you must travel to the adjacent box that has the next sequential number in it. This link is for mazes counting by 1 up to 100. However, this site also has mazes counting by 2,3,4, and 5. When Nicholas first realized that there was a little bit of work involved in this maze, he said that he didn't want to do it. But he stuck it out and got the hang of it and finished it up pretty quickly. So we're working on some of the harder mazes now. There are also lots of other great educational printouts on this site as well.
