For anyone looking to intro their kids into programming/computer science...
What if we could teach kids the basics of computer science and programming without sitting them down for hours in front of a computer? That was the idea that sparked this program at the University of Canterbury, and the entire curriculum is now available online completely free and under a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA License. Educators will find an exceptional range of resources here. For example, navigating to a section called The Book allows readers to freely download the fully updated 243-page, 2015 edition of the CS Unplugged textbook. The Activities section navigates to several dozen lively exercises, games, and events, each of them accompanied by photos, videos, and textual explanations. A number of Videos are available on topics such as Binary Numbers, Searching Algorithms, Cryptographic Protocols, and many others. For anyone hoping to spark the interest of children in computer science, this site is one of the best resources on the web
Anything & Everything.

code.org also has some great hour of code activities on their website at https://code.org/learn -- they're actually pretty fun little exercises even if you've been programming for years.
