Klutz Activity Kits for Car Trips


For your next car trip, try an activity kit made by the ultra-creative company Klutz Press, which publishes colorful, original hands-on "books" crammed with neat stuff and activities. Prices range from $4 to $12. (Sadly, some of the car travel classics such as Glove Compartment Games are showing as no longer available - except at a collector's price.)
