    Drag them into an encrypted disk image file.

    Why? What do you want to achieve?

    You could use Parental Controls from System Preferences. The 'Only allow selected applications' option allows you to set which apps a standard (ie. non-admin) user can access normally. All other apps can still be seen but require an admin password to open.
