TuxPaint [newbreedsoftware.com] is a really fun program for young kids. It even managed to keep my 2 year old entertained for 20 minutes -- which is a long time for a kid that age. It is a basic painting program, but with a lot of bells and whistles a young kid would like. It also has big easy buttons that are easy for children to navigate.

Here is a screenshot [cgi-fun.hypermart.net] of the program after my daughter played with it a bit.

It is really quite nice for children between 2 and 7. There is also a full screen option which makes it much easier for the kids to click away.

My 5 year old loves it too, very easy to create some really good stuff.

One of her friends came round with a bunch of Barbie CD's a while back, after explaining the benefits of free software my daughter fired TP up and we never heard another peep out of them all night. ;)
