If you are using the original CDs, you could try compatibility mode. Compatibility mode is a feature that was introduced in Windows XP to help make XP backward compatible with older software applications (like your games).
Insert the CD for the game the kids want to play, and then open my computer and explore the contents of the CD. Fine the .exe file that launches the game and right click on it and then left click on properties.
Left click on the compatibility mode tab and then start working your way backwards. Start with Windows 98. See if that works. If not, try Windows ME or Windows 95 as a last resort.
If this doesn't work there may be nothing you can do to solve this problem.
