You could use a sound. You could do this by using metadata to trigger
whatever works for the kids you are talking to today.

The idea is "here are links to play with". The presentation might be "here is
a picture. It means there are other pictures you can click on". Or it might
be "here is a sound. It means you can ask for more about the next 5 sounds".
Or it might be text that gets presented some other way.

cheers

           Last week when I was showing the kids the Mrs P's Links page, I
  pointed to the background and said when they saw that background, it was a
  place to find links they'd enjoy ... Is there a less "visual presentation"
  way to provide the same function another way on a page? (the first graders
  can't read more than a few key words yet).... about half the kids could
  find "Johnny Appleseed" to click on the target page, the others, I had to
  point to it for them.
