Can I make a profile in Firefox that will only surf to sites on an approved list?

Here's my situation. My brother is ten. I often have him over for the weekend and he loves playing on my computer and being on the internet. He frequents sites like Cartoon network and other kid stuff. While I'm always in the room with him when he's on the computer, accidents happen, and I'm wondering if there's a way I could set up a profile in Firefox for him that would only surf to sites on an approved list. Is there a way to do this? Preferably, I would like to do it without the aid of any software, but if I must, free is good. I won't use Internet Explorer. Also, it has to be local to just that profile; I don't want it to mess up any of my other profiles. Oh and I'm not that techie. I am basically internet savvy, but don't ask me to like hack my cable modem settings or anything. If this whole thing isn't possible without expert level knowledge, I can accept that.
