How about connecting them into 7-8' segments and weaving with them. The
idea poses some good mechanical problems for kids to solve (e.g., warp
"threads" might droop) and some good opportunities to get creative (flatten
some of the tubes...attach found a Klimt color scheme). I loved
Kens idea of cutting them on the diagonal on one end and attaching them to
a base. Reminded me of that desk game made of many short metal rods that
responds to the imprint of your hand or whatever you press into it, and you
have a relief of that object. I might start collecting the darn things

Let us know what you decide.
