Every kid will love learning how to make beaded bike streamers. After learning the spiral square stitch, the square stitch is a breeze, and kids will be ready to make streamers for their bike and their friend's, keeping them busy for hours.
Want a bike that'll stop traffic? First, splatter-paint some stars and add them to your bars -- handlebars, that is -- and to a safety-flag pole. Spiff up your wheels with straws and garlands, then hit the road! (Our decked-out bike should be ridden at a parade pace, not at high speeds.)
