Stop Motion for Kids


As a part of our clay motion class, we started by learning how the movement is made in the movies. It is just a series of pictures where only a slight change is made.

It was hard for the kids to realize that they had to produce so many pictures to make only a couple of seconds of video. They wanted to tell the story as fast as their imagination work, and that is fast, really fast.

Here were are going to see their first clips using a withe board and dry erase markers.

    These are wonderfully done. I really wanted to try this with my homeschool children, but wonder if they will have the patience or fortitude to see it through. Did you experience impatience and, if so, how did you handle it? I love them all, but my favorites were the whale and the forest.

    Hi Donna, thanks for your comment
    I started with the dry erase first, so they were able to see the results right away. Then we started building the sets, and they took a while, so in the mean time I did small projects with the most impatient kids, (where they only had to make small changes.)
    By the time we made the big project they were very excited and managed their time beautifully.
