It sounds easy, but to a five or six year old, holding the mouse, clicking that left button, dragging and dropping while holding a finger down is darn difficult. I found four programs that will make it painless:
Mousing Around–learn clicks, multiple clicks. Don’t be surprised when the kids start shouting out animal names.
Bees and Honey–shorter, but concentrates on clicks and dragging-dropping
Tidy the classroom while learning clicks, double-clicks (difficult for youngers) and drag-and-drop
Mouse Program–for olders who can read, but a thorough exercise of the mouse skills
