Nice projects!

You state 'very young visitors'. I would expect such kids to explore 
interaction through voice. You could have projects that use sound attributes 
(e.g. pitch - move, volume - turn) from the world menu to control movement. I 
am sure there are folks in this mailing list who can come up with suitable 
computations to detect noise, applause, sighs, yelps and whistling. It won't 
be long before the kids learn to whistle tunes ;-).
