I love my Panasonic 20mm 1.7. It's small, sharp, fast aperture, and the price is reasonable. That said, the one downside is the focus is a little slow. For shooting kids, I think the best lens for your camera is definitely the panasonic 25mm 1.4. It's almost the cost of the camera body, but it's a great lens. For something a little cheaper, you could check out the sigma 19 and 30mm lenses, they're pretty darn cheap, sharp, and focus fast. If f2.8 is good enough for you, they could be a good choice too.

Enjoy your new toy!
