Regarding the type of offense to run, depends upon if there's blocking or screens allowed. If no blocking or screens, I'd tend to set up the same formation each time to make it easy to remember. I'd probably go with two wideouts one on each side, a center with two tackles, three in the backfield, two slots one off to each side and obviously the QB. The reason I like the slots out to the side is for fake handoffs and misdirection plays.
Your biggest challenge will be getting everyone to the los and making sure the person with the ball runs the right direction. If they allow two coaches on the field, I'd use an assistant to just take care of making sure everyone lines up correctly.
Maybe others will throw in their 2 pennies.

We are able to block/ screen. The way it's been explained to me is the lineman do not huddle. One coach just makes sure they are in the correct spots and the backfield/receivers are in the huddle for the play.

Is that what u had in mind for formation?

A lot will depend upon how much your kids can absorb, but you're pretty much looking at a tackle formation/strategy here. Blocking matters, so your line should be working on opening holes for the runners. I'm guessing misdirection and good fakes will still apply big time due to the age division.
