You could also show them how Wikipedia has a "self-healing" process,
where vandalism is watched and reverted. They can try to vandalise, and
they will see, that after some time the page is back as it was (and they
will give up ;-)
And maybe, by letting them try, they will come back to wikipedia because
they like the idea.
If you stop them from editing from the beginning, they will surely not
get the Idea of Wikipedia.
Give us the link to your pages, so many eyes will watch vandalism and
revert it ;-)
