|Hints for uses in your library||This craft has been successfully adapted for library programs for children and teens. Make sure to provide a copy of the binary key to each participant. Have a third bead color to use as a separator between letters. Shorten this activity by translating initials or brief words instead of the participants' names. It's a good idea to have extra materials, in case the participants would like to make necklaces with their full names or a phrase.|
