Budget Sewing Project ideas for elementary school Kids

I'm a volunteer Fashion Design/Sewing teacher at my kids school. I teach 3rd thru 8th graders in the afterschool program. My challenges include: no budget, limited supplies, and many kids struggle with attention, motor skill, and confident issues. I have tested some of these projects but most are ideas that I want to try!

Rug. Cut 2.5 inch squares of knit fabric. Can use old t-shirts, grandmas double knit pants etc. Fold into triangles and sew onto a heavy fabric, such as denim or duck cloth. Draw lines one inch apart on your backing fabric. These will be your stitching lines.
