coded name necklace

Explore the world of science and technology by engineering some fun and unique crafts.
Step 1

Click here to download and print the coding key. Print one for each child.

Step 2

Looking at the key, find the letter for your name. To the right of the key, use the worksheet to spell your name by colouring in the squares the correspond to each letter of your name. Use the same colours to colour in as the beads you will use to make the necklace.

Step 3

Cut a piece of yarn about 18" [45.7 cm] long. Thread the coloured pony beads onto the yarn for each letter of the name using your coloured key as a guide.

Step 4

Tie the ends of the yarn in a knot when all of the beads have been threaded on. Trim any excess yarn.
