Drawing with Dots

20 min1 participant

Tactile recognition of dots on a braille brick. Engage and organize a plan in a creative drawing activity.

Let's play!

  1. Use only the dots of the bricks to draw :

  • a rectangle

  • a 2D drawing

  • emojis

How to prepare

  • 1 base plate

  • All the bricks

All the bricks are in the box.

Facilitation tips

  • Encourage trial and error activity to improve tactile and manipulation skills. Children may encounter difficulties positioning the dots as they wish.

  • Suggest sharing and exploring drawings created by peers to discover new techniques and ideas.

  • Ask "What is the story about your drawing?"

  • Pre-design a drawing for an example on a base plate.

Possible variations

  • Free play drawings.

  • Copy a pre-designed drawing from a base plate.
