Teaching kids to program

I have received an Arduino kit by the mail today.
My daughter (who is ten) made a market analysis and convinced me that she absolutely needed an Arduino micro-controller to "build things". Having looked at what others have done on youtube and knowing that the Arduino can be programmed in Scratch (which she has already played with), I ordered a breadboard kit (this one).

I'll tell you about it.

Update:
  • The Arduino and kit are great. So is programming it in a C like language.
  • The Modkit/Scratch option does not seem to be available.
