Long journeys travelling with kids in the back of the car, aren’t they just the best?!
Seriously there is only so much I Spy and ‘are we there yet’ my mind can take. Never mind when they start signing 99 Green bottles sitting on a wall.
Luckily there are ways and means to reduce the stress levels in the car! We are braving an 8-hour drive with a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old this summer so I have already bought everything on this list!!
Car Activity Tray
This is perfect for kids to stop their toys, books and colouring books falling on the floor. You could even fill it full of toy cars (or snacks) to keep them entertained.
Car Seat Protectors
These are a godsend if like me you keep your kids quiet in the car by giving them snacks. No more crumbs or raisins in the tiny crevices of your car. If your child is still rear facing these also save your car seats from their shoes! A godsend when it is wet outside- you can throw them in their car seat with no worries!
If you have a little Houdini on your hands these are brilliant to keep them safe and secure. My little girl was a nightmare for getting her arms out of her straps until I bought one of these. The kids taking their arms out is the last thing you need when you are driving on a motorway and have nowhere safe to stop and strap them back in.
Trunki Travel Pillow
These are great for when the bigger kids fall asleep and their car seat can’t recline. There is only so much pushing their lolling head up you can do. Not to mention the moaning and screaming when they wake up with a stiff neck. This solves all problems!
This tablet holder attaches to the headrests- allowing the kids to sit and watch without having to look down too much. That never ends well…
No more scratting around for footwell for all of the kid’s toys with this Central Organiser. Keep all of their drinks, snacks and book in one easily reachable place. No more disturbing you every time they want a new magazine or book.
These are a godsend when the sun is getting in the kid’s eyes. Woe betide they can’t see their screens!
These are perfect for long journey’s- fill them full of snacks and entertainment and everyone is happy! Loving the hook for the inevitable rubbish bag!
If you have a child in a rear-facing car seat these can give you peace of mind. See exactly what they are up to.
Don’t get caught short! These Emergency Portaloos look like a genius idea! Never worry about those long traffic jams again!
