Just to be clear: I'd advocate for just removing the pedals and leaving the crank and chain in place.

You could pull the crank but (1) it may not be the same tools as it's probably a 1 piece crankset and (2) I'd be somewhat leary of being able to get it back together as kids bikes aren't built to have their cranksets swapped out (well, you know what I mean - although I may be over-thinking this part). That being said, removing the crankset would be cheap way to turn a yard sale find into a balance bike.

p.s. I just put my 6 1/2 daughter on a 16" and there was some concern she wouldn't be big enough. She's small for her age, but she could be quite happy on a 12" bike (except that we needed that for her younger brother).
