Would another option be to setup a machine as a network boot client 
(either running LTSP or a full Ubuntu install over a network)?

I setup an LTSP server running on an old Athlon 1400 with about 640MB 
memory, it worked really well with one of the clients being an old IBM 
Aptiva P2-233 and a second client being an old 333MHz iMac G3, both 
booting off the network.

Kept my kids happy, they could browse the net, play games and use things 
like Tuxpaint and I could also limit their usage to during the day.
