Can you recommend C and C++ programming projects for beginners?

I am at the beginner level of programming in C. I want to work on some minor projects in C. I am talking about only C, not C++ projects. There are a lot of sites out there to guide you in programming, but I need to work on some simple projects and not just the sample codes. So, if you know of any good source, please share. Thanks in advance.

PS: It would be nice if you could tell me some source for C++ projects as well. Cause I am learning C++ these days. That way I won’t have to ask again when I finish C++.

    Either start your own small project or work on plugins or bug fixes for other projects
    wxWidgets is a C++ library that lets developers create applications for Windows, OS X, Linux and UNIX on 32-bit and 64-bit architectures as well as several mobile platforms including Windows Mobile, iPhone SDK and embedded GTK+.
    it is fairly big, but the code itself is fairly well laid out and easy to work with

    Hey i haven't given suggestion ever but still as i know C language so thought to help you a bit hope so it would be somewhere beneficial to you.... For projects you may buy Yashavant Kanetkar's book named C Projects. Here you may get a lot what you need and improve your skills in C. Don't hesitate to buy this book because Yashavant write books in such a beautiful n simple language that you will enjoy to read it.....( from my experience ). Hope so you may like my suggestion...
