Creating a real life comic is a great activity if you have small kids and it is definitely something the whole family will enjoy. I often leave my computer to my younger cousins when they come so they can have fun while I'm busy working. It is very easy to use and children particularly will be actively involved in the whole process which goes from taking the pictures to creating the plot of the story and then designing the comic. It is a great way for them to learn and have fun at the same time.
Comic Life is a really easy to use software that has several built-in templates and is available in different languages. Unfortunately it is available only for Mac computers. Get it here
