Recommendations for crazy Texas roadside weirdness along I35 between DFW and Austin appropriate for children?

My son has had a really rough couple of weeks. His greatgrandmother died, and then two days ago, our dog died, and a friend and their parents were killed by a drunk driver, and his best friend is trapped at her father's who won't let us see her during "his" month, and all in all...it's been tough to be him. I'm getting him out of town tomorrow to go visit his aunts, and go caving and go see bats in Austin. I've made this trip a zillion times, but usually alone, at high speed, and with a destination time to meet.
I thought tomorrow we would take it slow, and maybe stop and see any weird, i.e., "Worlds biggest rubber band ball" or Carhendge type roadside attractions that might be close to I35 between DFW and Austin. I know there's a ton of cool stuff in Waco, like the mill and the village where they live like it's the 1800s, but I'm seeking more goofy, cheesy, non-educational, americana, stupid funny things. Stuff that will cheer up an 8 year old who has spent a lot of time crying lately.
