drawing software for kids Tux Paint is a free drawing program designed for children ages 3 to 12 (but I even had fun with it!) . It combines an easy-to-use interface, fun sound effects, and an encouraging cartoon mascot who guides children as they use the program. It has a blank canvas and lots of brushes, stamps, and shapes to draw with. It doesn’t take long to install, so go ahead and download it and start creating!
