Thank you for sharing you work. We do have an overlap in audience.
I've noticed that kids want to create stories or games. And they want to 
know how to create this story or game in Blender.
So they start from the story in mind and I think that that's where we 
have to start our teaching of blender to kids as well.
Your tutorials could be part of a larger storytelling.

Kind regards,
At Mind
