Building a child's first rod

I'm thinking of building up a first fly rod as a Christmas present for my partner's very eager to fish seven year old boy. Any thoughts on the right line weight, length, etc.? I can form the grip to suit his hand. Could be a fun project. Has anyone done this for a child this young? He enjoyed fishing his little spinner outfit this past summer. I prefer rivers, but could take him to lakes if that's a better start. Thanks!
