Your 6-14 yr old may join us to decorate a bike to match the theme of the teenagers group build - ice cream! They'll use simple techniques and materials - foam, paper, cardboard, yarn and recyclables. Think cows, cones, ice cream colors/flavors and Willy Wonka-ish fun!

We will provide bicycles and materials to get you started. Already have a bicycle of your own?  Bring it with you and you'll go home with an entirely new bike!
