I thought about that too.
For my side decided to implement activities as HTML5/CSS3/Javascript
applications. It is a powerfull combination producable and useable on
nearly any device without any preconditions - beside an actual
webbrowser.  For iOS an Android without pain wrappable to a local app
even with access to hardware like accelerometer, camera, mic ...
Additionally there are thousands of really nice webapps out there for
our kids. As some kind of starting point I did a simple kids
webbrowser for iOS maybe you would like to have a look on it in iTunes
App Store it is called: "Kiosk Lite".
