Younger kids like familiar songs on the white keys. They can use whatever finger or hand comes to mind, giving them freedom to experiment. More complex elements like fingering, black keys and both hands can easily be introduced later when the child is ready. Follow the path of least resistance and get them to play as many recognizable songs as possible.
