Pattern for Crochet Unicorn Rainbow Game

My pattern for the crochet unicorn rainbow game is one of my most unique crochet patterns to date. I love designing all different types of projects. What’s unique about this one is that it’s an interactive, educational game for kids. We don’t make – or even see patterns – for things like this too often. So, I hope that you and your kids enjoy it as much as me and mine have.

Benefits of DIY Crochet Unicorn Game


The Unicorn Treat Game helps preschoolers and toddlers with color recognition. It also assists them in developing their fine motor skills. As they take turns in the game, they develop social skills. And the game itself teaches some age-appropriate strategies.

For advanced children, the winner must collect one pompom of each color. Therefore, little ones can use this game but older children can also enjoy it. It’s great for siblings to play together.

And, it’s great for you as well. Crochet helps keep your own fine motor skills up to date! It’s also a craft with many other health benefits including building self-esteem, reducing stress, and fighting the symptoms of depression and anxiety. So, working with the pattern for the crochet unicorn rainbow game is good for you and your kids!
