Submission + - robot projects for K-5

bugs2squash writes: Some of the parents of kids at my son's elementary school would like to set up a robotics club for the children. I see that Lego has a new line of robotics bricks called wedo and that seems to be the path of least resistance to doing something. But I wanted to ask...

What experience do all y'all have of running a robotics club for this age group (5 thru 10 years-old) and what factors made it a success (or failure) ?

Did you use a commercial kit of parts or brew something from scratch ?

What kind of projects work well with kids this age ? — I was thinking maybe making robot flowers (yes, I know they'd all rather build robotic sharks with lasers)
