Kid Pix is a legendary program. Like the public schools, we in Sunday School have been using versions of it since the mid-90′s. It’s that good and that VERSATILE.
Why have we been recommending Kid Pix for Sunday School since 1996?
Because you can use Kid Pix with ANY Bible story or topic. That makes it the “go to” program in many Sunday School labs, especially those with younger students.
Students use Kid Pix 4 to create their own “talking presentations”, slideshows, drawings, posters, cards, and more. It doesn’t come with Bible artwork, but we in the church have been using it for over a decade to make talking Bible storybook pages and presentations about our Bible lessons.
That’s why we like to call it,
“PowerPoint for Kids”
Yes, the drawing tools are awesome… but we like to highlight the TYPING TOOL that SPEAKS OUT LOUD whatever the kids type on their illustrations. Plug a microphone into your computer and use Kid Pix’s built-in recording tool to add your own narrations. Make talking Bible storybooks, reflections, prayers, and answers to discussion questions. AND…we love that we can IMPORT clipart and Bible images into Kid Pix.
Our free Kid Pix Teaching Tips have a ton of teacher tips and Sunday School lesson project ideas.

A Few Kid Pix Bible Lesson Ideas
- Assign a different scene in the Bible story to each computer, print out multiple copies and assemble into take-home book.
- Summarize and Illustrate the Story
- Pick a scene, re-illustrate it with a new theme, and type new dialog that has the SAME meaning as the Bible story.
- Illustrate the Key Memory Verse and play it back for your students.
- Take a photo of you and your friends posed at a key moment in the Bible story, import, add props and keywords, then print!
- Make a Bible Story Book Cover using the KP book template.
- Make a Thank You Card for someone in the congregation using the KP card template.
- Use the Typing-Speaking Tool to re-phrase a key verse in PIRATE “AAARG!” Language.
- Condense Deborah’s story into 12 key words. Now reduce it down to just 6 essential words. Discuss why you picked those words.
- Make and save several Bible verse illustrations that you can use as your Screensaver.

A Sunday School Customer’s Kid Pix Review and Great Idea
Dear Sunday Software,
My absolute favorite software is KidPix because it is so flexible that I can use it to teach any lesson.
The students always surprise me with how much thought they have put into it. Sometimes we use the speak aloud feature and then switch computers so that every student can listen to all of the other students’ thoughts.
This Sunday we are studying the Call of Abraham and we will be drawing pictures of aliens and adding our thoughts as to how a Christian sounds as an alien in this world. Later that week, I emailed their Kid Pix pictures from their lesson with a personal note to their parents.
Many of our parents use the picture as their screen saver. This saves our lab printer ink too.
My students’ favorite software right now is probably Bongo loves the Bible. We just recently purchased it and they are loving it!! This year we are emphasizing daily Bible reading in our children’s classes and I am using Bongo (or “that Monkey game” as some of the kids call it) to help me teach the importance of knowing what our Bibles say. My oldest group (4th & 5th grades) has had about four turns using Bongo since June and they are not tired of it.
I love what you’re doing at Sunday software and I love teaching with computers. Keep it up!

Price: $23 per copy
Age Range: K through 6th.
Younger children love to type! They just need help thinking about their drawings, finding the letters and spelling correctly. Though it takes extra time, the level of engagement and the results are the same = awesome.
System Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/WINDOWS 7 and 8.
Minimum: 1.0 ghz, 512 mb ram, 16 mb videoram.
Yes, our version works in Windows 7 and 8 ! Not all do. Toggle open the Alert at the end of this page for more details.
Not all versions of Kid Pix 4 work on Windows 7 or 8 (ours works)
There are several versions of it, and some do not work in Windows 7 or 8. They may install, but the animated stickers and animations don’t work. Sunday Software only stocks the working version. (In fact, most other distributors don’t even know there are different versions of KP4.) Just remember to install the latest version of Quicktime on your computer.
Note to Public Schools:
We sell a bunch of Kid Pix 4 to the public schools because our pricing BEATS academic distributor prices, and because our version of Kid Pix 4 WORKS in Windows 7 and Windows 8. The academically distributed versions often don’t or didn’t.
We do not offer a “network” version that works in W7/8. You must buy the correct number of individual CDs and install them on individual harddrives.
KP 4 Older Version Patch
Sunday Software has developed an exclusive “patch” for our own customers who have the older version of KP4 and suddenly find it won’t work on their new computers. Legally we can’t distribute this patch beyond our own customers. If you are a customer and need the patch, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Yes, we love this program! …and are tenacious about keeping it working for our customers. Due to copyright restrictions we cannot distribute the patch beyond our own customers.
