This study is concerned with the selection of workable materials and suitable handcraft activities for blind children of average or above average intelligence. Research was carried out from the related literature. Experimental classes were conducted in which various handcraft projects were explored by blind subjects ranging in age from ten to eighteen. The group included both the totally blind and partially sighted. The projects were analyzed by means of individual case studies as each subject participated in an activity. The case studies were used to evaluate the overall effectiveness of the separate projects. This study has shown that the subjects of this particular group can successfully use many of the same handcraft materials in projects similar to those enjoyed by sighted children in the public schools.
