Preschool Engineering with Rainbows

Share Button

Rainbows are the perfect way to bring in spring. Although I have to say rainbows are fun all year. They bring smiles, color, and such joy to everyone. At this point we are patiently waiting for that spring weather, jumping in rain puddles and hopes to see a rainbow. So I thought, why not do something fun and allow the children to enjoy their very own rainbow building.

Bring on preschool engineering!!!

Children are natural engineers, they love building, taking things apart, and figuring out what works. So to get in some STEM activity for the week we brought out the rainbows.

Activities that promote investigation, critical thinking, and hands-on learning are wonderful for project-based learning.

How high can the rainbows get? How many colors are we using to build? How many different sizes are there? Does it have to go straight up, or will it go to the side? What happens when children are left to figure it out on their own? Check out all of the different curves… These are just a few of the questions children might be asking themselves as they are building. As the parent or caregiver, you can also talk about these questions. Not giving them the answers, just sharing ideas.

 All of the beautiful rainbows that surround us everyday.

Set out your colored blocks and even silks for the children to build with.

Do you want to experiment more with preschool engineering and your rainbows? Add a basket of large rubber bands or some double sided tape and see what happens. The possibilities are endless.
