Plenty of Basic Bricks in the 5 colors of the Olympic Rings. Blue, Yellow, Black, Green, and Red. We used twelve 2×2 bricks and two 2×4 bricks for each ring.

Take a look at the pictures to construct your LEGO Olympic rings activity or come up with your own design! I love how our rings fit together like a puzzle. Plus the rings stand up as one unit! Place against a white background to get the full effect!

WHAT DO THE OLYMPIC RINGS COLORS STAND FOR?

The 5 rings of the Olympics represent the colors that are present on all the flags of participating and inhabited contents. In addition the 5 colors plus the white background represent the colors of all the national flags. What colors are on your nation’s flag. Read more here on the Olympic website!

Then we got creative and used the flat plates to make the letters of the word OlYMPIC. Here’s a hint that I wish we had photographed. For the letter Y, we used a flat piece that also has a rotating top. That’s how we got the Y to be able to rotate a bit! Pretty cool!

  1. Awesome! It is not easy building circles with LEGOs I tell you 🙂 You all make it look so easy! Thanks for joining in on all the Olympic fun for kids this year.

  2. Thank you! I was concerned they looked a little like diamonds at one point!

  3. This is a nice challenge and helps with planning, fine motor control, patience, and spatial relationships — without being preachy so to speak. Creative and engaging for the games!
