Sewing Projects for Kids

I don't know about you, but my oldest child, who is not quite 5 years old comes into my studio, sits down and gazes longingly at the shelves full of fabric. Of course, this fills my heart with pride - like Mother, like daughter, right? And, she is always spiriting away snippits and scraps of fabrics to play with. I often find them draped and fashioned around her "babies" (the gazillions of stuffed animals she has and plays with).
She is longing for the day when she can actually sew something herself. So, I have been compiling a list of sewing projects for kids, in search of a good one for a child her age.
Tic Tac Toe Bean Bag Toss
Rick Rack Fish (not a sewing project - more like a craft project - but terribly cute!)
Lunch bag (I am picturing giving G some muslin and some markers and letting her decorate and draw on the fabric and then I will use the new fusible vinyl I found to make the fabric water resistant and protect her design. I will stitch it into a lunch bag for her. This idea could evolve into some great party favors, etc!)

Do you have a favorite kids sewing project to share?
