2. Explore the content libraries of animation software
Content libraries have great templates that allow kids to easily and quickly put together a scene with characters. This is especially important in keeping kids motivated – they can experience the joy of creating with minimal effort and time.
3. Work side by side
Staying close to your kids while they work is great for answering questions and giving tips. Plus, seeing your work will give your youngsters an idea of what they can accomplish if they stick with it.
4. Observation can inspire
Getting outside and observing natural movement, color, patterns and texture can help refine kids’ sense of movement and background environments.
5. Watch your favorite animated shows
Finally, watching your favorite animated shows can help kids learn how to incorporate transitions, texture and technique into their own work.
Note: A tablet might be a worthwhile investment; animating with pens and brushes can help your child create in a more natural and less frustrating manner than having to use a mouse.
