What are some good game development programs for kids?

I want very easy game builder for a kid - somebody who knows nothing about programming games (how they work inside) and just wants to build some (I could teach him but I am not available all the time). She tried Adventure Maker and got confused. It has to be something very straightforward. Do You know about any? Thanks. :)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Alice by Carnegie Mellon University, was built explicitly for teaching those with no knowledge of programming, how to construct apps, by visually building interactive environments and simple games. It's well-geared for kids from what I've seen. The interface is good and allows you to build simple 3D games with basic parameters, teaching you Java as you go -- but it leads one very gently into the coding aspect.

Kodu, a visual game-making framework by Microsoft Research, was designed with kids in mind. It runs on an XBox 360 and uses a controller for input.
