One of the things I’m trying to do, as a parent, this summer, is get my kids doing some creating and not just consuming. They watch a lot of YouTube and read a lot of books. I want them creating art and stories as well.
This video is a great example of stop motion animation. Stop motion animation is something kids can do without too many tools or background knowledge. It can be a fun way to get them making things. (My kids did it with salt and pepper shakers at a restaurant some years ago while we were waiting for our food!)
If you’re looking for some tips in addition to inspiration, this video might be helpful.
