It's not a BASIC, but you may be interested in this:

Load81 is basically Lua + SDL + a C64-inspired editor. As you can see here, the main dev wishes for it to become popular on the Raspberry Pi (N.B. Project used to be called Codakido):

"That's my target, I hope that when the Raspberry PI will be available enough, Codakido will be functional enough to be a good alternative to the BBC micro BASIC."

If you want to get your kids into programming, this article is worth reading too, to remind us of what a lot of us went through when starting out (hint: get them making games):
