You probably heard by now that a bunch of celebrities and company founders (i.e. Bill Gates) are promoting the understanding of computer programming for kids in regular education.
MIT developed this programming language for kids called Scratch to teach kids the concept of programming. You can download it for your kids, nephews and nieces from code.org.
I really like it. I wish I had this before I started programming in Basic back in early high school days. It puts aside all the low-level details (that needs to be eventually understood), but it focuses on easy writing of code, the concept of loops, IF conditions, WHILE loops, variables, events and so on.
Here is a link for video tutorial for Scratch:
