Fitzy's post made me think about one of my daughters lastest projects. She has many friends that she wants to give birthday presents to, but no job, so money is tight. She made them picture collages. She got poster frames and a piece of poster board at the craft store. Took a bunch of her pictures to have copies made (you could do it on your computer if you have the right kind of printer, we don't though), and then cut all the pictures up, cutting around the people and working her way up the frame she covers the whole poster board with the pictures. Then she added some scrapbook stickers to some of the pictures, like halloween ones for the costume ones, flip flops for the ones of them at the beach.... It took her a weekend to make each one. But she had a lot of fun making them, and I think if she was making them with someone else it would have been even more fun. You could make ones about certain events, or just growing up, or to give away, or with friends. I think the whole project including the glue cost less than 20 bucks each.
The other thing I thought of is maybe picking a place or culture and researching it and then making a meal based on it. Either just a regular meal or something that would be one of their celebratory meals. It could be a lot of fun to look up recipes and try new foods. And except for the shopping for ingredients, you could do it all from home.
