Braille Paper Craft
April 20th, 2012 by Craftylocks


This is a special craft for children. As well as it being fascinating for them to see their name in a different language, it is also a great learning opportunity.
Using a braille alphabet, write some names using a pencil to make the dots first – leaving plenty of room between each letter. Go over the pencil marks with white glue, acrylic paint, or nail varnish to make raised dots. Once the names are dry, try reading the names with your fingers.
We made our braille names on a folded piece of paper so that we could easily check what the name was.

This project shows a great way to explore sense of touch. I remember doing something similar in school, with identically sized beads glued into Braille letter forms on paper.
