The language suggestions given by commenters are fine and all, but without a kid-friendly tutorial/book/educational game, it's all moot. BASIC? Go search amazon for a book on basic aimed at kids. You'll find a lot of 25-year-old books aimed at basic on the Apple II. Nobody writes programming-for-kids books now like they did when we were young.
