Creative Birthday Desserts for a Dad on Budget

Hello all, 
 
My son is turning 4 years old this year, and I would like to bake him a birthday dessert that is fun, interesting, and unique. I would like to veer from the conventional birthday cake this year.
 
The only problem is that my company downsized this year, and I was laid off. As such, I'm on a very limited budget and am looking to spend less than $12.00 on whatever ingredients the recipe requires. I know this probably sounds crazy, but I'm appealing to all of you cooks out there who can think creatively for me. I thought maybe I could make rice crispy treats or brownies, but that seems like it would go over my 12.00 limit. And it doesn't seem terribly creative, to be honest.
 
Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated!
 
Thanking you all in advance for whatever info you can provide. I appreciate it.
 
Todd
