Quoting Peter Brink <peter.brink AT>:

For Sweden and the rest of Scandinavia (and probably a good part of the rest of Europe) the main rule is quite simple: minors are not capable of entering contracts on their own.
[...] A minor in Sweden is therefore nor allowed to issue any kind of copyright license, open source/content or not.

In the UK the child's parents would have to license the work. I helped a community project here get some legal advice regarding this.
