I am searching for a recommendation for a pattern for a pairt of "lounge" pants. Something simple that I can make for may daughter to wear with sandals and a tank. AND maybe make for PJ pants for my son.

A great pair of lounge pants can be made from Bandana's. I'm not sure what size you are looking for though. You can Google Bandana pants and take a look, very cute. I know for the directions is basically the same as a pillowcase dress. You will cut a J shape and then sew them like you would normally sew pants. I'm sure this method would work for any fabric and size. Hope this makes sense lol.

Take a pair of great fitting pants that you already have. Match the inseams together so you can get the shape of the leg. :D Trace 4 of these (2 makes one leg) match them up and then sew up the seams. then put the legs together and sew up the crotch. :D That is how I make pants for my girlyos :D
