TuxPaint

To install it, Go to: Menu–> Software Manager and search for tuxpaint.

Once installed, your youngsters can use it to draw anything they wish. Their artwork is always auto-saved, and there is no interaction with the operating system at all. You reopen past designs by finding them in a list of thumbnails.

Built in shapes, let you stamp stars, circles, squares etc. in any size they want. The controls are very easy to learn, so kids will pick up the software very fast!

The program has lots of interactive sounds, which young kids seem to enjoy as well, with cartoon style prompts and sound effects.
