In the past, I've made holiday themed items that need to be 'decorated,' such as an orange pumpkin with different black shapes to make a Jack-O-Lantern face, and a green Christmas tree with different shapes for ornaments. I'd love to make a little gingerbread boy and girl to go along with "The Gingerbread Boy" book we took out of the library recently.
