This is not possible with Word. Use your favourite search engine to find 
specialist software intended for children and this task.

It can be done manually, by drawing the shape and then typing the text (with 
indents and breaks) to match the shape, then removing the drawing. Or you 
can create negative shapes to constrain the text. But it is not worth the 
effort when this task can easily be done in a drawing program such as 
CorelDRAW.
