How to draw magically moving pictures in five minutes!
This is how I made the pictures move in my book, 'Grandma's Eyes.' This is a great way you can entertain kids and even adults. When they see the pictures move like magic, they are sure to be impressed. That is, if they had not seen it before.
The picture on the left shows me entertaining a big bunch of kids and their parents, teaching them this.
The videos are self-explanatory. You fold a sheet of paper in half.
Then you draw on the half at the bottom.
Now you draw on the top one, using the 'show-through' of the paper.
Now flip and flap, to see your drawing move!
The above clip shows you how I made a puppy wag its tail. The one below should give you more ideas: making pendulums swing, birds fly, and suns glow. If you have any new idea to add, send me your tips!
