This little toy will teach your child how a cartoon is made. All you need is scissors, paper, tape, and some pens or a pencil.
Trace four circles which are all the same size.
Now draw Jumping Jill. It is perfectly fine to use stick figures. Jill is doing jumping jacks. There are three positions. There is a transitional position, with arms out to the side the and feet slightly apart, followed by arms up and feet wide apart, a second transitional position, and the last position, in which Jill's arms are down and her feet are together.
To make all the Jills the same size, I used the window for tracing.
Now fold all the circles in half lengthwise, and
tape them together like so.
Add a pencil as a handle and tape the paper to the pencil.
To see Jill do jumping jacks, twirl the pencil slowly between your hands. Jill will start to go! You made a little cartoon!
