Teaching kids about algorithms can be done on paper, like with this dinosaur coloring page activity from JDaniel4’s Mom.
There are some different options for the kind of dinosaur they color, but the instructions are the same for each in terms of what is one when. You can explain to kids that this is just like a computer program, where the steps have to be done in order for it to come out correctly.
