Like an Etch-a-Sketch for your computer, this free drawing program uses arrow keys to draw simple pictures. While it may appeal to some nostalgic parents, today's tech-savvy children would probably need features lacking from this program to stay entertained.

WormDraw requires no installation, but you'll need to unzip the executable file to run it. The program's simple interface dominates your entire screen and utilizes the arrow keys for drawing images. It's easy enough even for small children to manipulate the drawing worm. Unfortunately, it doesn't offer any other drawing tools, such as paintbrush, crayon, pencil, or airbrush. In addition, you won't find coloring tools or color palettes to enhance your drawings. One thing to note is that kids won't be able to lift and position the worm to a specified location on the drawing pad--it simply draws continuously. You can send your drawings to the clipboard and save it using any graphics software.

While WormDraw is free and easy to use, we weren't impressed by its limited output and small feature set. Most parents and kids will probably want more than what this program has in store.
