    Default app or kids games all in one locked folder?

    It called guided access and you do it through your iPhone settings. Go to

    Settings
    general
    Accessability
    Guided access
    Switch on
    Set passcode.

    Then when you open the app you wish your child to play with, on the opening screen you tap the home button 3 times and start the session. They can't exit the app without the step below.

    When they are finished you can tap the button 3 times and select end session.

    Hope I didn't miss any steps.
