Colouring pages
Colouring pages offer nice simple shapes to create cutting files and are easy to convert.

Disney Colouring Pages - these ones are great as you can colour your page online. The coloured page then can be printed to PDF and will open as a vector file, therefore no tracing required before use. 
Printable Coloring Fun - these pages also print to PDF. So far all the ones I have used have been vector PDF files.
