I finally tried My Paint. It is really cool too. Years ago I paid alot of money for a program called "Painter" that came in a paint can and smelled like paint. Loved it. Now I have an open source replacement.
TuxPaint is fabulous too, but is a different flavor and the kind of app we need for kids.
TuxPaint, the Gimp, My Paint, and Inkscape are a pretty great group of tools. Thanks to you all!
Does anyone know of an open source replacement for Band in a Box?

a Wacom that she used prior to getting the tablet.)
I must say, though, for young kids, it's hard to beat apps made specifically
for them, such as KidPix or (my own) Tux Paint. :)
An off-the-top-of-my-head analogy would be the little nuts-and-bolts
assembly toys for kids (Tux Paint) versus actually going out into the
garage and dismantling the car (Gimp, Photoshop, My Paint). Ok, so that's
a BIT of an exaggeration. ;)
PS - Next Tux Paint will include a number of (long-needed) accessibility
