I have used Tkinter for this purpose, you have to learn some basics, but
then it works great. I have also used VPython, whcih had an amazingly low
learning curve, I programmed a variant of 3D life in a very small amount of
lines of Python code. Although you don't need 3D I would play with VPython
at least as source of inspiration.
