In animation, GIMP uses layers...each layer is a frame of the animation.
When in GIMP, it's helpfull to get the 'Layers, Paths, Channels' Window up if it's not.
To get it go to Windows>Layers, Paths, Channels...
Now that that's open, you can see the layers of your image. It always starts with one layer, then you can add layers and customize them to build up your animation.


Here's an animation you could make to give it a try...

Spoiler: show

Say you wanted an animation of a Webkinz wink...
1. Open a new image
Click the image to open in full size.
2. Get the Webkinz picture and paste
Click the image to open in full size.
3. Open new layer
Click the image to open in full size.
4. Copy same Webkinz on to new layer
Click the image to open in full size.
5. Now you have 2 layers, but both are identical so you need to change something...here is where you will make it wink. So take out part either eye to make a wink effect
Click the image to open in full size.
6. Let's preview our animation...go to Filters>Animation>Playback
7. Hit 'Play' to see your animation...you'll see it goes very fast, so what if we want to slow it down?
8. You can specify the time taken on each frame by writing (in parenthesis) the amount of time in Milliseconds. So say we wanted the first non-blinking layer to be 1 second (1000 ms) long. So type in (1000ms), brackets and all, in the NAME of the layer.
Click the image to open in full size.
9. Let's take a look at the animation now. Go to Filters>Animation>Playback, again.
10. It's looking pretty good now...time to save! Go to File>Save
11. Type in the name of the file (we'll name it Winking_Webkinz for now). So name it Winking_Webkinz.gif (you MUST specify to save it as .gif, that is the ONLY file type that can handle animation).
12. Select 'Save as Animation' instead of 'Flatten Image'.
13. Don't worry about any of all that writing...erverything there is already specified in the layers. Just hit Save.

Here's the end result
Click the image to open in full size. (you can do both eyes to blink instead of wink)

Good luck with your animation!

I'm not really an expert on GIMP, but I found two tutorials for simple animations and advanced animations:

GIMP - Simple Animations
GIMP - Advanced Animations Tutorial

I hope this helps you out!
