Looking for a project that taps their vivid imaginations and tells a story?
Make a stop motion video with your kids.
It’s an educational activity that’ll cultivate your child’s creativity, reinforce valuable life skills and create long-lasting memories.
In this article I’ll show you how to make a low- to no-cost stop motion movie with your family.
Why Make a Stop Motion Video?
Stop motion, defined by Merriam-Webster, is “a filming technique in which objects (such as clay models or LEGO bricks) are photographed in a series of slightly different positions so that the objects seem to move.”
It’s fun to make a movie with your kids! You’ll engage your creative muscles in a whole new way as you reinforce writing and storytelling skills; design sets, characters and props; and explore the craft of movie-making.
Making a movie helps strengthen life skills such as storytelling and leadership, teamwork, organization, critical thinking and communication. And kids’ confidence will get a boost when they inspire, move or entertain people with the final results.
