I'd go pick up a copy of GameMaker Studio or GameSalad or a similar system.

Unlike most of the For Beginner posts, you're not looking to get a job in a major game studio when you grow up, or make the next major breakthrough, so you don't need to learn the core game programming languages. Since she's already an artist, extracting the parts she needs to provide great art should be fairly easy.

With your combined background it could make for some very interesting GameSalad results. If nothing else it could give you some new creative activities for a weekly date night.

I'd give an anti-recommendation against Unity in your case unless you are planning on a serious investment of time. Unity is a great tool, but based on the description I don't think it is ideal here.
