Tux Paint (alternatives and settings)

My 3 year old daughter is running tux paint all the time now but I have a problem that I thought someone might be able to help me with

Since I run at 1280 x 1024 the window it runs in is very dinky.

Is there a way to change the size of the window it runs in, or could you suggest an alternative 'paint' like program for me to install.

Remember, we are talking about a 3 year old.

You can use ctrl+alt+the plus and minus numpad keys to change resolution on the fly.

So use that to change down a few notches, and then start tuxpaint.

Once she's done, repeat the process to bring it back up to 1280x1024.

Good luck!
