Not sure if this'd be more fun for kids or parents, but it's certainly bait for anyone who liked "Midnight In Paris." Martha Stewart-vetted artist Joel Henriques is offering free downloadable templates from his ambitious Paper City Paris, a stand-up version of the city of lights built in miniature out of paper. On his site Made By Joel, Henriques, a stay-at-home dad, details the adorable playtime he had with his kids after finishing the city:

We've been having a great time creating Paris adventure stories together and acting them out. Driving the Citroen car through the Arc de Triomphe, buying candy at the Confiserie, and standing at the top of the Eiffel Tower.

Conveniently, that's all stuff you can do with the free templates! That's right: the most charming afternoon of your life awaits, and it's free of charge. Why can't the Paris tourism bureau adopt this policy, again?
