Next, before making the zipline lego ‘cage’, I showed my daughter a few videos of people zip lining. I showed her a few different ways that they can go and people can be strapped to the lines.  Then I gave her the big bin of LEGOs that we have and told her to create her best zip lining ‘cage’.

She did a great job. It amazes me that kids can be so creative when given the right tools!

This easy to make Lego DIY Zipline is a must for your summer bucket list!

Lego zipline challenge

Tie the thick string to one stationary place. This could be a doorknob or a fence post, like we did.
Add the ziplining cage to the string and attach to a second stationary place. Depending on the layout of your home or outdoor set up, this could take a long piece of string. We thought about the swing set, but our rope wasn’t long enough.

Kids of all ages will be impressed by this DIY Zipline you can make today

DIY Zip Line

Start the zipline on one side and let it slide.

It was more difficult for the lego zip line to move across when the cord was even. This is mostly because the string was straight across. We untied one end and held it up higher and boy did that help!

Here are step-by-step directions in how to build a zipline for hours or play this summer

Summer STEM Activity

Since this is just string tied to various points in the house or outdoors, you can experiment with various things. The handle on the fridge or dishwasher, the bulletin board, table and chair, side of the house, etc. Experiment and see which track works best for you!

It would be fun to make multiple zip line cages and race them!
