Soccer Flip Book

Materials Needed

Light Cardboard Paper or Index Cards
Colored Pencil


Divide a sheet of paper into 12 equal parts,
or cut index cards in half, creating 12 squares.
In pencil draw a diagonal line through the square.
Imagine that a soccer ball is traveling up the diagonal line slowly.
On your first card draw the soccer ball at the bottom of the card,
next card, illustrate the soccer ball a little higher toward the top,
the next a little higher etc.  On the next 6 cards imagine that the
soccer ball is traveling down the diagonal line,
and reverse the drawing and soccer ball placement.
After all 12 cards are finished, staple the cards, and color, and flip your book to see an amimated soccer ball.
