You will need 3 to 6 pennies for this bracelet, and some clear contact paper. Cut the contact paper two inches wide and long enough to fit around the child's wrist or ankle. Have the kids shine the pennies with copper cleaner (use Vinegar and salt, or an eraser). Lie the pennies in a row on the sticky contact paper. Fold the paper in half lengthwise. You can punch a hole in the ends of the bracelet and tie with a ribbon for wearing on Lincoln's Birthday!
