Mouse skills are often harder than you might think and there is a wide variety among small children. I can always spot the children who do a lot of computer work at home. They are really smooth with the mouse and with clicking. It is often hard for a children to point accurately and it seems to be very hard for some children to find just the right way to click. They often hold down the button just a little too long.
Well, that'll teach me to read my mail before I shoot off programs. Herewith a revised NKL with greatly increased target box sizes.
I guess they're just learning to hold a pencil too. It's really a much more demanding motor skill than say holding an eating utensil.

To save an attachment to your computer, PC users should right-click (Mac users, click and hold the mouse button) on the link and then choose 'save target as' from the pop-up menu. A window will then pop up in which you can choose a location for the file.
