Is it possible to redeem 2 award seats (business) for adults using Qantas Points and then paying for a kids business fare on the same ticket?

Yes. I managed to have a reward seat in business released for my to Santiago and there was also a sale going on. Whilst the customer service agent did the reward booking I worked in parallel and bought seats for my daughter and myself so the flights could all match up. The agent I had was outstanding and very helpful.

The service centre should be able to link tickets in cases like this otherwise they have to manage unaccompanied minors which isn't cheap and a hassle for them.

Have you thought about paying for one of the adult tickets (and booking the child on points) so the adult get the status credits/ points?
Would it be cheaper to pay for a kids seat on business? I can't check the price because Qantas doesn't let me book unaccompanied minors online easily.
Its many years since I traveled with children but I just did a dummy booking for one adult and one child and it was a little cheaper for the child (under 12) - so I have learnt something today!
