I did a demo to a younger classroom that was a big hit. I took a simple platforming example video game, had them draw characters and enemies and stuff on a whiteboard, then took a picture with my phone and dropped them into the game. The most-time consuming part was "magic wanding" the background away. They weren't animated or even cut out very cleanly but the kids just loved being able to control something that they drew themselves a few minutes earlier.
