If you are looking for awesome iPad apps to try I suggest Kodable, Daisy the dinosaur, Light-Bot and Hopscotch for starters. If you are using a computer I suggest trying Light-Bot and www.Code.org. If you haven't tried programming on an iPad I highly recommend it for the kids as young as 4.
Here are a few pictures that captured the joy of learning to code. I don't have any shots showing the "agony of defeat," as they used to say on the old ABC's Wide World of Sports. But there are some "thrill of victory" snapshots!
