You'll want to wrap all of pygame up in a nice kid-friendly wrapper. I'd 
start with things like defining functions that get called when certain 
events happen.

Learning programming you will not want them starting with the important 
parts of pygame, like handling event queues, managing dirty updates, and 
those details.

Good luck with your plans, I recommend the pygame mailing list and irc 
chat if you get stuck on details.
