We all know how difficult it can be to keep the kids occupied; they have plenty of energy and when adults need a break, the children are still rushing around, looking for something to do. It would be a shame not to direct this energy towards something beneficial, in a way that combines learning with self-expression.
Animation makes for a great after school activity as it is both creative and educational. Children love watching movies and playing video games and with the HUE Animation Studio kit, they can create their own Aardman-style animations and discover how films are made. They’ll learn new skills and immediately put them to use to tell their own stories.
Making a stop motion animation from scratch builds upon the following:
- Creative thinking
- Literacy skills
- Problem solving
Kids can unleash their creativity through animation, and at the same time they’ll develop various skills in a fun way, without even realizing they are learning.
