Build a Lego Rainbow

Rainbows – bright, colourful and rewarding to make, why not Build a Lego Rainbow like the one pictured below?

Lego Rainbow
What do I need to make a Lego Rainbow?

To make a lego rainbow you will need lego pieces ideally in 5-7 colours depending on the size of rainbow you want to make. You will also need several pieces of each colour. (Top Tip: If you have less bricks of certain colours, use those for the inner layers of the rainbow, as they require less bricks).

A lego board – although this isn’t essential, unless you want to keep the rainbow for a while. You could just build the rainbow on a table.

How do I make a Lego Rainbow?
  1. Group the different colours of bricks together and decide what colour order you would like your bricks to be in (just remember you will need more bricks for the outer layers)
  2. Start with the centre of your rainbow and make the initial arch. (Refer to picture above).
  3. Then place the next layer of bricks around the first arch. (Refer to picture above).
  4. Repeat until you have used up all your colours (Refer to picture above).
