Kids love Halloween, crafts, and movies.

Here is a craft that combines all three!

All you need for this craft is:

One book of Post-It notes

A pen

A backdrop light source (I used my iPhone)

First decide what your mini movie will be about. (Keep it simple.)

Then draw your first frame on the LAST page of the Post-It notes. 

Your next page will have to be very similar except for a slight change, you can start showing any action here in a very small way.
(Here the ghost starts to pop out.)

The next frame he pops out a tiny bit more. (Notice the grave stays the same. I traced the grave using my iPhone to back light the image in each frame.)

Make your character move only a tiny bit in each frame. (You can check to make sure by using the iPhone here also. I went to the NOTES page and started on a new page because it is blank and bright.)

Keep changing your picture a tiny bit at a time until you have an image for each Post-It.

When you are done drawing, start at the back and flip through the pages. Watch the action!

It is a bit easier to do if you keep your images either in one corner or across the bottom of the pages.

Have fun!!
