The quickest and cheapest way to introduce the concept of planar decomposition and additive construction might be like you suggest with a toy like the '3D Sculpture' puzzle below, followed by a nice video demonstration of modern fabbers. The Darth Vader or Pharaoh kit might be the most fun for younger kids. Of coarse a MakerBot would be nice too, if the budget allows for it. G.
