When you've got a small space and a restless child, what you need are 101 ingenious solutions right away. Here they are - easy to implement, creative fun for the three to seven year olds - activities that can turn tough moments into teachable, terrific ones.
Kids want room to move around, but sometimes they just don't have enough space, places like in cars or on planes, in the doctor's office or at the grocery store, or when they're sick in bed. This book includes activities for::
I'm all Revved Up/I'm too pooped to play

Car, Train & Plane Trips
"I want to go home!" moments
They include activities such as:
- Craft/Creative Fun
- Nature & Science
- Music, Sound & Dramatic Play
- Cooking & "Gooking" activities
While raising two exuberant boys, teaching preschool, leading Cub Scouts, and running a business, Carol Kranowitz developed savvy, creative ways to keep kids content in tight spaces. Her activities combine old standbys with new ideas born of desperation and cramped quarters. These wonderful activities help kids develop their skills and abilites while entertaining themselves and interacting with others.
Carol Kranowitz is the author of the best selling The Out-of-Sync Child.
