Looking for a distro with kids games that would run on older computer

Is there such a distro that has a lot of kids games or educational programs that would run on an older computer? Someone gave me an old 266 P2 with 64MB of RAM and a 4GB hard drive. I'm thinking that I could run Feather Linux or Damn Small, but is there any distros out there tailored for this sort of thing?

Just found Debian Jr...has anyone had any experience with that? If I'm right, that should be a pretty small system if I configure it correctly, right?

I run a Slackware system and the kde-games package installed contains a set of games called "Edutainment" for kids - seems to be right up the alley you're seeking.
