Coding for Kids

From: Jonathan
Sent on: Thursday, January 10, 2013 5:55 PM
Hey everyone,

I'm setting up a laptop (osx) for my nieces, and I'd like to get them interested in programming.  When I was a kid I learned Logo, and Basic, and really enjoyed writing small programs on our Apple IIe.  

Does anyone have any suggestions for kid friendly programming out there these days?  My nieces are 8 and 5.  I think the 5 year old is a bit too young to get started, but I think 8 is old enough to get started.

Thanks!

- jonathan
