If you have a camera or video camera you can do this! Hey, I bet you could send your most talkative boys in the hallway to do this. You can use just about anything for the characters, modeling clay, action figures, barbie dolls. All you have to do is keep the camera still (a tripod works best) and take a picture. Then move the character (in small increments) and take another picture. Repeat. When you put it all together it looks they are moving. Check out the stop animation we made to promote recycling.
