How to move the mouse
Since most young children may not know the difference between left and right, focus on teaching the mouse movements of up, down, side to side. Use a basic paint program or mouse-skill activity where the target on the screen is larger than a typical arrow. Continue to repeat aloud, 'up, down, side to side' as you and your child move the mouse in those directions.
