Want to give your kids a creative experience they can accomplish independently? Bring out Crayola’s Easy Animation Studio. Color a character from the Design Booklet–super hero, fairy, pirate, robot, monster, bear–or create your own to scan with the free app. Now pose and move the mannequin to catch the stop action on your device, or use the options for air spin, back flip or blowing a kiss, record your voice for sound effects or dialogue, title your masterpiece and you are ready to show it off to the audience. You only need a few poses for full animation as the app fills in frames in between for smooth action. Kids are creating the character, choosing a setting and developing a plot, all essential elements for good story telling and writing, building language skills for later academic success.
