    Bricks would look nice. Sew into rows and stagger the rows.

    If you like squares better, square them up to 5 inches. Make an Irish chain type quilt and use the 3 x 5 leftovers in a piano ke border.

    I-Spy, kids love them. You can make them in any shape or design you want.

    If you want something quick and easy I too would suggest just squaring them all to the same size and randomly sewing blocks together into strips and then sewing the strips together.
