My son is 7 years old and loves to play minecraft and watch videos via youtube. He has seen all types of mods for weapons and other things which he would like to experiment with. I have downloaded a mod installer as well as winrar and minecraftforge, but I do not understand how to launch and install these.

Can anyone help a novice with simple instructions for how to get this done?

I'm not sure if 1.6.2 is any different actually, but from what I've seen (people saying they've finally found out how to install mods on 1.6.2) it is.
Basically to get earlier versions what you have to do is run the mc launcher, but don't click play yet. Instead click on the third tab from the left along the top of the window that says profile editor.
That's all I can remember, as I'm not at my pc at the minute but ill be able to help you in (some v.v) hours, unless someone else does, which I'm sure will happen as pmc is full of.. uh... Helpfulness ^_^
Sorry I wasn't much help I just need something to do...

to change version:
Run Launcher
In the bottom left corner, there is a button that says new profile. Click it.
Change profile name to 1.5.2
Leave checked boxes as they are (Unless you want the launcher to disappear when you play the game)
Click on the box where it says 'Use latest version'
Go down to and click on 'release 1.5.2'
Now press save profile in the bottom right

now in the bottom left corner you will see your account name. Click on it and when it drops down, press 1.5.2
Now press play and it will install 1.5.2
(You can always get 1.6.2 by changing the profile again)

Now, what 1.(5/6).2 mod(s) do you want to install? Because the methods vary a little sometimes.

Kovacic's Modpack ~http://www.kovacicsminecraft.com/modpack.php
Follow the instructions on the website to install this as it has lots of good mods which it automatically installs. (I think it's 1.6.2 now)

Thanks. I followed the link and installed the kovacic installer and have installed several mods, but I can't find them in the game itself.

In the Profile Editor Tab, there is a version name "Kovacic's Mod Pack" but under username it says not logged in on the Kovacic line.
