This is a 'screencapture' taken directly from the KidPix Help book (available under 'help' on your KidPix toolbar).......remember I have suggested that every school have at least one colour copy of this printed out and accessible for all - better still 1 copy per team.

Very Cute.....

Useful Tips

1) Drawing using the mouse is quite difficult so one way to support the children is to get them to draw the picture first on paper, trace the outline to transparency paper and the attach this to the screen for the kids to trace around using Kidpix tools.
2) Children can get lost in all the choices available to them in the different tools. You can cut down the number of tools available to them using the Teacher menu (hold down Control T to see this menu on a PC)
