Hello,
         can anyone help I am looking for a java applet that can be used by children in a educational site.

Is there any free applets that can be used to draw paint etc but very siimply with 1 color and brush size being able to change brushes and colors is not required. ie tha ability for kids to be able to draw in a thin pencil off white color on a black background is ideal.

best wishes from New zealand

Here's source for something simple.
Draw with the mouse, erase by refreshing the page.  If you need the class file tell me your email and I'll send that and sample html

// DrawApplet
//

import java.awt.*;
import java.applet.*;
import java.util.*;


public class DrawApplet extends Applet
{
      public void init()
      {
      }

      public boolean mouseDown(Event e, int x, int y)
      {
            FDown = true;
            FX = x;
            FY = y;
            return true;
      }
      
      public boolean mouseUp(Event e, int x, int y)
      {
            FLines.addElement(new Rectangle(x,y, FX, FY));
            FDown = false;
            return true;
      }
      
      public boolean mouseDrag(Event e, int x, int y)
      {
            if (FDown) {
                  FLines.addElement(new Rectangle(x,y, FX, FY));
                  FX = x;
                  FY = y;
                  repaint(10);
            }
            return true;
      }      
      
      public void update(Graphics g)
    {
            Graphics gr;
               
            if (FOffScreenBuffer==null ||
                  (! (FOffScreenBuffer.getWidth(this) == this.size().width
                  && FOffScreenBuffer.getHeight(this) == this.size().height))) {
                  
                    FOffScreenBuffer = this.createImage(size().width, size().height);
            }

            // We need to use our buffer Image as a Graphics object:
            
            gr = FOffScreenBuffer.getGraphics();
            gr.clearRect(0,0,size().width, size().height);
            
            paint(gr);
            
            g.drawImage(FOffScreenBuffer, 0, 0, this);                  
    }

      
      public void paint(Graphics g)
      {
            g.setColor(Color.black);
            g.fillRect(0,0,getSize().width, getSize().height);
            g.setColor(Color.white);
            for (int i = 0; i < FLines.size(); ++i) {
                  Rectangle r = (Rectangle)FLines.elementAt(i);
                  g.drawLine(r.x, r.y, r.width, r.height);
            }
      }
      
      private boolean FDown = false;
      private int FX = 0;
      private int FY = 0;
      private Vector FLines = new Vector();
      private Image FOffScreenBuffer;
}
