I must admit that when I did my novice licence many moons ago, one of my favourite things was the building of radio sets. It was fascinating seeing how they worked, and the skills that I learned as part of my City and Guilds have proved invaluable throughout my life. 

That said, everything has changed so much that I can't see me building a crystal set with my kids. Are there any child friendly kits that you would recommend? My oldest is ten and I would like to get her heavily involved, teach her to solder and so on.

My son has just turned 13 and I’d love to help him build his own radio set. However, like you, I’m concerned about helping him build a crystal set.

I was going to ask the same question. I remember my brother having a science kit that built a transistor radio. I am looking for a kit for a HAM radio that a kid could understand.

A friend once recommended me to check this website for electronic kits which kids may like. It's not limited to radios only because there are other devices introduced. It seems like a nice introduction to engineering and ham radios specifically for young people.
