Computer Art for Kids

This morning, I was looking for a simple game for my daughter to play on the computer. One that didn’t require too much mouse coordination (optical mice don’t have quite the precision a 2-year-old needs) but that was entertaining. I stumbled upon something at an unexpected location: jacksonpollock.org.

It’s very simple: move the mouse to drop paint and click the button to change colors. It’s kind of addicting.

Now, when someone sees a Pollock painting and says, “My kid could do that!” you can responsd, “Thanks to jacksonpollock.org, you’re probably right!”

When our kids were 2ish we found that they could manipulate a big oversized track ball much easier than a mouse.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
