Default Kids design/build project

Looking for a durable (EPP maybe) aircraft that will fly slowly and take some abuse to use with kids 10-13 yrs. I can cut foam with a hot wire, make templates and I have pink, blue & white styrofoam, 3mm Depron and EPP in 2" x 2' x 4' as well as 6mm and 3mm sheets and lots of carbon for spars. I have built the southern cross and designed & built many other big kid 3-D foamies but I'm looking for a proven slow trainer type that will take abuse & fly in a 3/4 court GYM.
I have several AXI 2204-54 motors running 8/3.8 APC props, some Castle Creations, Phoenix 10s and a bunch of 830 mAh LiPos sitting around from experiments with my 3-D stuff. Servos are the little guys sold by Balsa Products; can't remember the name. I think I could eventually get a good design going but time constraints don't allow much development time. A pusher type would save a lot of wear and tear on the motor. A docil flying wing would be light.
Help please.
I need to be ready in two weeks.
