What is Kid Pix?

Kid Pix is a computer program for elementary school children.  It provides various art tools like pencil drawing, paint buckets, stamps, shapes, erasing, text insertion, and sound.  Newer versions of the software have features like slideshow and wacky TV.  Teachers can incorporate lessons into Kid Pix in almost any subject: language arts, math, social studies, science, and music/art.
