Tux Paint - Paint Program for Children

If you have young children or grand children who use your computer, you might like to let them loose in Tux Paint. Tux Paint is a very easy-to-use drawing program that allows young children to explore their artistic side without getting poster paint all over the carpet (and themselves).

Tux Paint Interface

From the developer's site:
Tux Paint is a free drawing program designed for young children (kids ages 3 and up). It has a simple, easy-to-use interface, fun sound effects, and an encouraging cartoon mascot who helps guide children as they use the program.

My children and their neighbourhood friends have thoroughly tested Tux Paint over the last few weeks. They just love it! I have it installed on my Windows XP system as well as an older (and considerably slower) Windows 98 machine. The program is quite stable and has not caused any problems on either system.

An outstanding feature of Tux Paint is that it runs on several operating systems, including Windows, Mac and Linux.
