Make Your Own Flipbook

Flipbooks are more formally known as kineographs.

When making flipbooks, it's best to start with simple animations and work up to more complex ones.

If you think that art projects always require a ton of supplies, you're wrong. Check out how to make your own tiny movie - with little or no cost.

If you think that getting in touch with your crafty self has to involve a huge investment in sparkles, glue and sequins - think again! Some of the coolest art is the simplest. Here's a project that will release your inner artist with minimal fuss.

What You Need:

  • Pad of paper
  • Tape
  • Markers

Step by Step

1. Reinforce the top of your pad of paper with tape so the pages won't fall out with frequent flipping.
2. Decide what you want to draw and keep it simple so it's easier to animate. Draw your first picture on the last page of the booklet.
3. To make a picture look like it's moving, you have to make it move a little each time on each page. For example, if you want to draw a stick man walking across the page, start with the figure standing legs together. In the next frame, move one leg forward a little. Keep moving the legs slowly back and forth - and the figure forwards.
4. Flip the book from back to front and - tada!- you're an animator!

  • If this craft is too low-tech for you - or if you're, like, allergic to paper - make your own online flipbook at www.benettonplay.com.

Say you're in canada and you meet someone all the way in asia. Online dating is great in that way. It can be bad because sometimes they could be fake, or you may never be able to actually see them. Some people who online date have met each other and even got married, living amazing lives. People who online date sk_pe and message/comfort each other in all sorts of different ways. Though they can't actually be there for them, their words are good enough to place a smile on their face. There is nothing good about it. You don't know anything about the person. They could be lying about everything. Also if you decide to meet up somewhere, you could find out that the person is dangerous and then they could hurt you. Well that is your opinion. I think it is  great thing. Especially for someone like me who can't really speak to people outside the internet.

How to go to sleep: Use a sleepmask and earplugs, (don't worry if they fall out in the night) and keep a night light near your bed that isn't LED, just normal light. If your parents room is by yours, ask them to keep their light on until you go to sleep. Hope this helps!

Yes, they can. cx However, the type of hat was not clarified and so it made the sentence sound awkward. That's exactly my point, thank you.
