The BI’s After School Program had a special guest visit to teach the children how to make bracelets and necklaces using homemade paper beads.  Using magazines, newspaper, scrap paper, even candy wrappers, the kids cut out triangles and roll them onto toothpicks.  The rolled paper is coated with watery glue and left to dry.  The kids can then make their own jewelry with plastic beads and their very own paper beads!
