We should have an article on every pyramid and every nome in Ancient Egypt. I'm sure the rest of us can think of other articles we should have.
To start with, most of the general history articles badly need attention. And I'm told that at least some of the dynasty articles need work. Any other candidates?
Standardize the Chronology.
A boring task, but the benefit of doing it is that you can set the dates !(e.g., why say Khufu lived 2589-2566? As long as you keep the length of his reign correct, or cite a respected source, you can date it 2590-2567 or 2585-2563)
Anyone? I consider this probably the most unimportant of tasks on Wikipedia, but if you believe it needs to be done . . .
This is a project I'd like to take on some day, & could be applied to more of Wikipedia than just Ancient Egypt. Take one of the standard authorities of history or culture -- Herotodus, the Elder Pliny, the writings of Breasted or Kenneth Kitchen, & see if you can't smoothly merge quotations or information into relevant articles. Probably a good exercise for someone who owns one of those impressive texts, yet can't get access to a research library.
Our coverage of hieroglyphs has been completely wrecked by an over-enthusiastic editor with limited knowledge on the matter.
The aim of the cleanup project should be something like List of cuneiform signs, i.e. a well-referenced lookup table translating between existing academic conventions. The Unicode block will be a good starting point, as they essentially did exactly the same work already.

I tried to incorporate the information in the tables. Lots of cleanup work still needed. The information is basically duplicated in the Gardiner list sub-pages and in the "alphabetic by English description" pages, which I have made a subpage to this one, Talk:List of Egyptian hieroglyphs/workpage. I think most information is just duplicate, but of course it may be worthwhile to plod through it all. --dab(𒁳) 15:29, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
