When I did this, i used to use legal size paper cut into 8 squares. They
needed 16 to get a little movement. Students were encouraged to draw a very
simple movement, e.g. sun coming up, ball bouncing etc. The trick then was
to spread the papers just a little before stapling so they are each just a
little out of sync with the paper on top and below--then staple at the top.
It worked pretty well.
