Here are an assortment of downloadable paper kits. Just download, unzip, open in the appropriate type program and print. Once printed, just cut and assemble. They can even be assembled with clear tape - an issue that spares parents from having to clean up glue spills.
Files are in either PCX or WMF format. The Windows paint program is not powerful enough for larger files, and it does not handle WMF. For large PCX, try a shareware program. You can download them free from Tucows.com or CNET.com. A popular program is NeoPaint. You can also get Graphics Workshop, which converts files to other formats.
Note that PCX is a bitmap format similar to BMP. WMF is a vector format, and requires a Draw type program rather than a Paint program. (We have heard that some versions of NeoPaint can handle WMF as well as PCX.)
