Simple LEGO activities like this LEGO rainbow challenge below have been great fun for my five-year-old son. He’s just learning about LEGO and all the cool things you can build with them, but he is hesitant to build his own crazy concoctions. I thought a few challenges would help him get some practice trying out new things! Look for the two versions of FREE rainbow challenges below.
LEGO Rainbow Challenge for Kids!
Build A LEGO Rainbow
All you need is a set of basic LEGO blocks in as many bright colors as you can find and a base plate! We used a 10 x 10 blue base plate which made a great sky for our LEGO rainbow.
You could also use large blocks for this fun LEGO challenge if doing it with a younger child! I came up with two LEGO rainbow ideas for the whole family. Even Daddy loves playing with LEGO too! You’ll find some extra ideas below too.
RAINBOW STEM CHALLENGE IDEAS
First, we made a rainbow with clouds. His task was to recreate the rainbow! He needed to study my Lego rainbow to make his. He used visual skills, building skills, math skills, fine motor skills, and more.
Then we had fun creating all sorts of rainbows with the pieces we had left. It’s pretty simple and fun to invent small Lego rainbows.
There are so many amazing benefits associated with LEGO play. Building with LEGO is one of the best early childhood learning tools you can use. We have used our bricks in dozens of ways that don’t require specialty pieces or a huge collection.
MORE RAINBOW THEME BRICK CHALLENGES:
- Instead of building up and over as we did, build a flat rainbow on a baseplate!
- Build a rainbow tower alternating brick colors. How high can you go?
- Build a garden of rainbow flowers!
- Build your name or initials with a rainbow theme.
- Build a rainbow monster!
