For the blank template pages, I gave the boys a packet of Adhesive Small Dots (8mm diameter) for them to stick onto the template to make the letters. These dots were raised slightly from the paper, so the boys were able to close their eyes and feel what it would be (sort of) like to read Braille. They had a great time learning the placement of the dots for each letter and number of the alphabet.
