Taught almost 7 year old granddaughter to solder. I was in radio shack for a 
couple parts and she saw a Velman? LED Christmas tree kit. By the time we 
got to the LEDs, she was installing the parts, soldering them in and cliping 
the leads and not wanting ANY help grandpa..  After struggling to clip the 
leads (not enough hand strength yet) on the first 8 LEDs she decided I could 
help some. After she decided on whither to use the gold or the silver 9-Volt 
battery (and showing her how to match the circuit board + sign with the 
battery + sign) she put the battery in and it worked first time.

Still another week and a half of her vacation left.
