Try scratch. I was made by MIT for kids, it is event-driven and graphic. My 7 years old is addicted.
They have a very nice web site with examples.

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!
