Scratch

Scratch is a super easy, intuitive program that lets just about anybody create their own interactive stories, games and animations to share on the web. Scratch was designed to be used by kids ages 8 and up and its incredibly easy (and fun) to get started.
It’s free and was apparently developed by folks at MIT specifically to be useable by people between the ages of 8-16 year olds as an educational tool. They offer a number of instructional videos, start up guides and examples to help you get started. Don’t let the target age group turn you off though, this is a fun program to play with and regardless of your age and skill level it’s doodle-friendliness makes it well worth grabbing.
