Mazes are excellent vehicles to encourage pre-writing and problem solving skills.  These are suitable for preschool, kindergarten and early elementary grades.

Doing simple mazes is one way to help children to develop the small muscles needed to write.  Have children trace the path through the maze with a finger first and then with a crayon, coloring pencil or marker.
