Mazes are simple puzzles that many kids of all ages can enjoy. There are multiple online maze games that can test a child's puzzle-solving abilities. Most of the games are easy enough for a young kid to understand, control and solve, but engaging enough for older children to enjoy as well. Many of these games also double as adventure or exploration games.
Kids can control a duck explorer in "Maze Crazy" a game available at the Just Kids website. The objective is to explore the maze looking for treasure to take home. You can move through the maze using the arrow keys on the keyboard. Each key moves in its corresponding direction. Opening treasure chests requires answering a simple question, such as "What is a herbivore?" There are no enemies to fight, but you must balance your food, air and water levels. If these drop to "low," the game is over. Players collect water jugs and carrots to maintain their water and food levels; the air level only drops in certain sections and is replenished by moving back. You must find all the treasure chests to post your score online.
"The Maze Game"

Touching the wall ends the game immediately, but you can restart the level right away, giving you only a small disadvantage. The mazes start out very simple, but gradually increase in difficulty. Later levels may challenge their reflexes and mouse control skills; however, none of the levels get too difficult for kids.
