Tux Paint

Open Source painting software for children. Tux Paint is a free drawing program for children ages 3 to 12 (preschool and K-6). It combines an easy-to-use interface, fun sound effects, and an encouraging cartoon mascot (penguin) who guides children as they use the program. Kids are presented with a blank canvas and a variety of drawing tools to help them be creative. There are similar drawing tools as Kid Pix: line tools, shapes, even stamps that are very real and magic tools that say what they do. When you save, you can see them as thumbnails, print, and use with other programs.
