Sorry but no way to do that with standard iPhone and apps

Did find this but I do not recommend doing it.

You'll have to jailbreak the iPhone as per the link in the previous post as iOS does not have such a feature.  iPhones don't support multi-user profiles or locking specific apps.

The only other option is to put the phone app and other critical apps in a group and move them to a screen separated from the YouTube , game apps. This will prevent accidental activation but will not stop them browsing through your phone if they're determined.  It will also make it less convenient for your day-to-day use.

Ultimately the iPhone makes for a very expensive handheld toy for kids...

Yes I know that's why I did not recommend it

How old are your children?

Consider setting up their game/video, then enabling guided access mode, which can lock them IN a specific app.  Requires triple-click on home button and a passcode to exit.
