101 Activities for Kids in Tight Spaces

Carol Stock Kranowitz, M.A.      176 pages/ 1995

You can never have enough space. And if you can't, just think of your kids-all the time they have to spend in tight spaces-like cars, planes, trains, the doctor's office, the grocery store, being sick or housebound, waiting in line. Kids need room to move around, but there are many times when they just plain can't have it.

While raising two exuberant boys, teaching preschool, leading Cub Scouts, and running a birthday party business, Carol Kranowitz came up with savvy, creative ways to keep kids content in tight spaces. Her activity ideas combine old standbys with new ones born of desperation and cramped quarters. They follow a philosophy that helps kids develop their skills and abilities while entertaining themselves and interacting.
