Tux Paint – Drawing for Kids

I have been looking for a good colouring and painting programme that my 5-year-old son can use easily. Windows Paint is Okay for beginning, but beyond a point, it is very limiting for their creativity. I have tried many of the commercial one’s that you get in CD and DVDs in Bookstores but most of them are little more than being useless. Today I came across a free and Open-Source drawing program for children ages 3 to 12 called TuxPaint. It combines an easy-to-use interface, fun sound effects, and an encouraging cartoon mascot who guides children as they use the program. Last one hour my son is playing with it and seems to like it a lot.

  • Hi,

    TuxPaint is a wonderful paint program. I got this for my Sister’s son when he was around 7 years – more than a year. He liked a lot.

    Tux4Kids is similar project – It has Maths/Type programs. Am yet to check those. Hope they would be useful as well. http://tux4kids.alioth.debian.org/

  • Thank you for your wonderful Suggestion. I have been looking for one and this looks really ideal for my daughter.
