According to the psychological characteristic of children and constructivism learning theory, a method of de-veloping web-based animation on safety education of children is presented. The design of cartoon’s scenario, character’s dangerous behavior and interaction are introduced. 2D animations are exaggerative and suitable for the young children, 3D animation are realistic and suitable for exploration in different views.
