I made DS1 a "car wallet" last year before a trip and he loved it. It folds out with a little road for the cars and has a couple of pockets to store cars. He also loves felt food. My 4 year old niece likes the felt food too. Last Christmas, I made her a fabric doll house that she seemed to enjoy. This year, I think I'm going to make her a set of "cloth diapers" and a sling or other carrier for her favorite doll. She's very into her babies lately.
For the 12 year old, what is she into? If she's into sports, maybe you could make her a new sports duffle. If she's a girly girl, maybe a purse or makeup case. Or check out Pinterest for some recipes for things like sugar scrubs, bath bombs, etc.
