Help setting up iMessage for kid

Just bought my 8-year-old a 4th gen iPod Touch. I created him a gmail address thinking that would work for iMessage...can't figure it out.

How do I set him up to receive iMessage texts on his own?

Thanks

make an icloud account using that gmail address, or just make a new icloud account all together. There was no need to make a gmail address.
