Get ready for summer and bike safety month as we create our own bike handle pom-poms with supplies found around the house. Then strap on your helmet and take them for a spin! Try matching your pom-poms to your helmet or create several different styles that you can swap.

Instructions:
  1. Bend a straw in half and add pom-pom materials to the bend.
  2. Tape the ends of the straw together and cut to a point.
  3. Insert the point of the pom-pom into one end of your bike’s handlebar.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the other end of the bike’s handlebar.
