I heard about a great free kids program on Jumping Monkeys a few weeks ago called Alphababy.  This is a Mac only program so when we got our new computer I was excited to get a chance to try it out.  Alphababy is very simple concept.   When you run it the screen turns white and every key on the keyboard will display either the corresponding letter/number or it will display a shape.  It also will tell you what it is.  To exit the program you need to hit a 4 key combination making this a great screen saver to prevent the kids from accidentally deleting something while they hammer on the keys.  The boys love hunting for letters and discovering the different shapes.  If you have any little kids in the house who like hopping on the computer, I highly recommend it.
