There is a saying in hindi

Bacche bhagwan ka roop hote hai

literally meaning

Kids are incarnation or manifestation of Bramhan.

Since Bhagwan is used to refer Bramahan or the Ishta devta (for Smartha people). So this means that it is just a saying derived from the happy and blissful nature of kids(since bramhan is Sat-chit-Ananda) or it has a scriptural basis?.

    I think Skanda Purana says that Karma will be applied only for deeds done after age of 8. So, people below 8 have no karma and they generally have ignorance and innocence. So, may be due to this they are called as manifestation of Brahman. – The Destroyer May 16 '16 at 13:33
