Computer games and apps for learning music and typing. Some are free (with "in app purchases" so be careful!) and some have a reasonable purchase price.

Smart Game Piano

A fun, online resource for learning to play video game music on the piano. There's a large and growing library of songs, and you can find them by level of difficulty, or search for a particular game. (As a trained musician and music educator, I have to add a cautionary note here. The site makes the statement, "You don't need to read notes." If you're just looking for the experience of creating music informally, this is fine. But if you have a child who is at all serious about composing or performing music, please provide the tools for learning standard music notation.
