The plan is to bring all the bits and bobs up and supervise while she puts it together, as well as a simple electronic project (traffic lights), However I think for the time being she'd be happier playing games.
The Pi will be using a 32Gb card (possibly 64) so space shouldn't be an issue, Natalie does like puzzle games so I'm looking for Ideas what to install so she can enjoy the Pi straight away.
Any Ideas, think of a 10 year old girl whose kinda a tomboy.
If you want the games to serve as a stepping stone to programming, choose games with publicly readable source code. There are quite a few such games
available. The simpler the better as it takes less effort to think up ways to improve them. Maybe bumprace
is a start.
