Working with roses would be a multi-year project- probably not well 
suited to hold the interest of a 7 year old.  If you really want to work 
with roses, I would suggest crossing different species of roses (not 
named horticultural varieties), since they would be hardier, would grow 
on their own rootstocks, would display many different morphologies...

Another suggestion- get a hold of the book "Breeding Your Own Vegetable 
Varieties" by Carol Deppe.  There is lots of good info there.
