Snowman Braille Design

Braille snowman

This tactile graphic of a snowman can be created following our step-by-step directions or by downloading and embossing the .brf file.  Braille drawings are a fun way to motivate students to practice braille skills!

I got this design from an earlier post by Edith West and put together the step-by-step directions.
