Vacation Care Activities
Stop motion animation with animation stations and iPads.
Children love animation. My Stop motion activities utilise iPad technology and real stop motion techniques. The children create their own animations whilst learning along the way.
They are first introduced to animation principles, entertaining demonstrations and the iPad based animation rigs. Next they are divided into groups and can begin their animations. Each rig comes with everything they need to create their animated scene. On completion the animations are edited together to form a complete movie which is shown on the big screen. It will also be uploaded to a password protected web space, where it can be viewed by family members.
The activity typically runs for 1h 45 min to 2h. This includes a 20m interval that allows me to edit the animations together to present on the big screen. Groups significantly greater than 36 children will require an extended session of 2h 35m.
