This week's topic: "Water/Liquids"

This week we would like you to create Flipnotes about water and other liquids. Animate liquids such as juice, magma, oil, soda, syrup, or water. Include things like fountains, plumbing, puddles, raindrops, rivers, spilled drinks, water balloons, wells, or waterfalls in your Flipnotes. You can try to use the Nintendo DSi Camera to animate liquids, but be careful to not get your Nintendo DSi wet! See where your creativity takes you!

Please submit your weekly topic Flipnotes by 9:00 PM on September 27, 2012 (Thursday) US Pacific Time, and we will present some of our favorites on September 28, 2012 (Friday).
