Is it illegal for children to buy yeast so they can make their own alcohol?

No because that's not the only use for it. It's not gonna go down well if the person is caught using it for such though. You would need to be old enough to get a license, and everyone who wants to make alcohol of some kind needs a particular license to do so.

I use yeast to make homemade bread. But that's the wrong type of yeast. You need a yeast called 'brewers yeast', it's what Breweries use to brew beers!

No, as yeast has other uses.

Baker's yeast is NOT suitable for making alcohol. The result will taste AWFUL. My husband tried making mead out of baking yeast .. he was not able to stomach the taste of it.
Those who make wine or beer use BREWER'S yeast, which is different.
And other alcohols are made from distillation, not yeast.

During prohibition bread yeast had a warning written on it to the effect of "if you mix this with mashed grains in a sealed container, you will be in violation..." Basically telling you how to make it because that's how they kept their business up.
You can buy yeast. You can put bread crusts with fruit in a garbage bag like prisoners do. But I'm pretty sure any sensible place wont sell you a beer making kit or beer kit branded yeasts.
