You Will Need
- Algorithm software
- Measuring tape
- Spray paint
- Hay bales
- Maze-building company (optional)
- Building codes (optional)
Design your maze
Consider the type of maze you want to construct. Depending on the complexity, computer software can provide algorithms needed to make your maze using GPS technology. Don't forget to take height into account.
Select the locale
Pick a location for your maze, making sure you have enough acreage to fit the entire maze. Measure and mark the dimensions carefully with spray paint, according to your selected algorithms.
Get straw bales
Solicit local farmers for bales of straw. Depending on the size of your maze, you'll need several hundred to over a thousand bales. You may be able to sell the bales once the event is finished.
Gather your volunteers
Work with local PTOs, churches, and school groups -- anyone affiliated with your organization -- to round up as many volunteers as you can.
Haul the bales to the maze location with a tractor. Follow the spray paint markers and build the maze to the desired height. Once completed, decorate the maze for a fun or spooky atmosphere.
