    I use KidPix 4 with my kids in my computer classroom. when I first started teaching 4 years ago, we were using KidPix 3. The teacher showed me how to go to KidPixAdmin and print off a booklet of all of the stamps that the children could use at their desk. Now I cannot find how to do it again. I needed to make extra copies. Do you know how to do this?
