She could do crafts for herself, to sell, or for charity. She could find info on the web about making quilts for babies (Project Linus), knitting baby hats for babies in other countries that actually die because they don't have hats, knitting rectangles that are put together to make blankets for the homeless, sewing heart pillows for kids in the hospital, sewing walker and wheelchair storage pouches for people in assisted living centers, ect.
She could read books online. Colleges offer free courses including MIT and Stanford. They may have things for kids.

Family Fun has a good web site and would have ideas. Mothering Magazine has discussion boards and there are a lot of people that homeschool and are used to finding things for kids to do yearound. You could get more ideas there.
