Strong passwords for kids?  http://www.dinopass.com/

Even stronger?  Use a passphrase:   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passphrase

A passphrase should:

  • Long enough to be hard to guess
  • Not a famous quotation from literature, holy books, et cetera
  • Hard to guess by intuition—even by someone who knows the user well
  • Easy to remember and type accurately
  • For better security, any easily memorable encoding at the user's own level can be applied.
  • Not reused between sites, applications and other different sources.
