I'd recommend looking at past issues of the MagPI - lots of projects in there. Also Carrie-Anne's book Adventures in Raspberry Pi might be of interest.

If you want to work with the GPIO, look up the tutorials associated with Gordon's WiringPi project. It'll start you out with blinking an LED, and work you up to a crosswalk simulator with 5 LEDs and a button. Good place to start for electronics control.
You'll need at least a breadboard, LEDs, resistors, wires, and a button (or you can make a "switch" by touching two wires together.)

Do you have much programming experience, and if so to what degree?
