I started teaching my son to program today, using Etoys and , and he's enjoying it so far. I decided to start with Etoys because it's designed not just for programming, but as a learning environment. It's a shame that it's not as actively developed any more.
And now my son is teaching my daughter how to use it. :)

Oh, but I can do that too!
