Celebrate Hopewell Heritage Weekend by making your own version of a wampum bracelet in the Lenni Lenape style with colored plastic beads. The Lenni Lenapes were the original people of New Jersey. They would traditionally wear a beaded headband, using wampum beads. Wampum beads are small cylindrical beads made from shells that were strung together and worn as decoration or used as money. The Lenape tribes were well known for their beadwork. Takes place at the Pennington Public Library. Guardian presence requested. Part of Hopewell Valley Heritage Weekend. Registration required: Each child who makes a wampum bracelet will received one free movie voucher to Hopewell Theater. The vouchers are valid on most films from June–August.
