Picture of GeoTrax Outhouse Model
GeoTrax is a model train system from Fisher-Price is a remote controlled train, plane and truck system that is extremely rugged and fun for a wide range of ages from the very young to the surprisingly old. The problem is that unlike "scale" model systems there are not a lot of models you can add to layouts to make them interesting. In fact the only ones I know of are those provided by Fisher-Price.

This model of an outhouse is another in a set of models for use with your GeoTrax layout. This model is simpler to assemble and may be a better model for a child to build. Also the humor of the model is (generally) more amusing to a kid.

Step 1: Print and cut out the model.

Print the image below and if you prefer glue it to something stiffer like poster board or foam core.

Step 2: ASSEMBLY METHOD 1: Assemble on card board

Glue the picture to some light card board or poster board. This is the best compromise between complexity and sturdiness.

The roof is meant to form a gap with the slightly higher door panel. Fold the tab over the door and use it to glue to the roof to hold it in place.

The odd color shift is due to my printer being low on ink.

Step 4: ASSEMBLY METHOD 3: Assemble with paper only

This is the easiest, but it is also VERY flimsy.
