How To Make Stop Motion Movies – Kit Giveaway

Jun 19, 2012 40 Comments by

Stop Motion Movie Making is a perfect summer activity for your restless ones, and not just because it keeps them busy and out of trouble either! Stop Motion requires planning, attention to detail, problem solving, storytelling and more. Young men who typically find those things difficult are captivated by Stop Motion Animation, and probably have no idea of all that they are learning and the character they are building as they plot out and execute their creations.

    We found out about Timberdoodle YEARS ago (likely 15 or 16 by now). Our son wasn’t even old enough to go to school, but my husband used to order Lego through your company and of course, a catalogue always was delivered along with it. I used to pour over those catalogues and really, they were my inspiration to even begin homeschooling. I hadn’t really even seriously considered it an option until then…I was a public school teacher and new nothing about educating my own child, as crazy as that sounds. Thanks so much for sticking around through all these years! My third child just turned 3 and we are still having a blast using Timberdoodle products for our “school.”
