[Wine] Limiting the execution of Wine to allowed programs

My uncle has these kids who messed up their Windows computer on a monthly basis by going to unsafe websites. So I had to fix it for them, multiple times. There was a time when I went on strike, but because of the family I was "forced" into fixing it. Lots and lots of hours wasted on fixing their computer problems and still they don't learn their lesson.
So, the past few months I changed them to Kubuntu. No viruses since and no reinstalls done for a long while :D Then a few days ago I found Linux Mint. Loved it and am in the process of switching them over. But there are a few games that I'd like to get working for them (they are die-hard sonic fans :) ). No problem since I already got them working.
The issue I have with Wine is that, unlike before or I never noticed, every executable that Mint sees can be executed. I don't want that. Those kids like to download random executables and install them.
So, if I could prevent wine from running all the exe files except for the three games that I installed, like have some kind of allow list, then it would be perfect. How do I go about doing this?
