CSS3 tutorial ideas for kids

By Eoin on 14 June 2013.

(Examples should work in Chrome and Firefox at the time of writing, 2013.)

Teaching kids CSS animations

I was tasked with setting up a CSS3 tutorial for kids.

They were about the age of 13 and 14.

I figured that CSS3 animation would interest them, so we went through these examples.


(Should fade in, move across the screen, and fade out.)

The sun

(Should be spinning, and have a gradiented colour.)



(Should shake like an earthquake when you hover your mouse over the image.)

Rocking boat

Pirate boat

(Boat should be rocking.)

Teaching the concepts
