Smile Help with themes for quilt challenge

Our guild has a challenge for quilts that cater to children aged 6 - 12. Any suggestions for what someone in this age group might find "wicked"????
Thanks!!!!

My 8-yr-old DGD loved her warm wishes quilt I made her--mainly because the solid blocks (focus fabric) were cupcake fabric. She loves anything with cupcakes on it. I think kids would like this pattern if the fabric was something that interested them.

"Wicked" as in naughty? Or "wicked" as in COOL!?

Sports themed
Dancers
that paper doll fabric
Worms/bugs/dinos
Cars/trucks/planes/earth-moving machines/school buses
Harry Potter
Circus theme
and this one which I've copied from somewhere I don't remember...

Or in the same vein, fish bowl quilt. Use different fish fabrics to create the bowls.

A few years ago, our guild bought children's books and the challenge was to create a small quilt that went with the story of that book. The quilt and the book were given to children in the area.
