Pipe cleaners are so versatile and are an excellent tool to encourage kids to use their imagination and get creative. It only takes a few multi colored pipe cleaners to make these simple and fun bicycles. My kids were racing these ones around the house all afternoon and were most pleased with their creations. You can find multi colored pipe cleaners in most discount variety stores.
