Good question! I'm gonna be doing something similar next year with my dd too. She comes & helps me in the garden already & she's only just turned 1. My thoughts so far :
sunflowers since they grow really really tall so you can measure them. See whose grows biggest & stuff.
Vegetables of some kind. Tomatoes are good. Some greens to help encourage her to eat them - not that my dd needs any encouragement there. Pumpkins maybe to see how big they get.
Peas so they can climb up something & she can eat them when they're little & sweet. Yummy.
Cute little flowers like pansies & calendulas coz they're good colours & good companion plants.
A few herbs possibly too so she can start getting into them as well. Maybe something like chamomile so she can make tea out of it or some mint. Some parsley to munch on.
Everything, with the exception of the herbs, should grow easily from seed.
