Road Trip Sanity with a Toddler

TDBODY LIFE BOOSTERSEATS 1 SPCAR SAFETY  hr It's the summer. No really, I know it doesn't feel like it, but it is!

It's the time when people hook up their caravans, pack their tents or jet off to sunnier places for their holidays. If you've ever travelled any distance with a toddler you know that you need to be prepared for all events that are likely to come to pass whilst you're on the road.

That means packing food or knowing where you're going to stop along the way. Stopping along the way is also essential for those inevitable pee stops, because there's nothing worse than having to stop on the hard shoulder of any of the motorways so your toddler can have a wee!

Actually there is - a toddler in the back of the car who is BORED!

This ingenious idea to combat toddler boredom whilst on the move is so simple I want to know why I hadn't thought of it before!

Little kids are obsessed with buckles and clips, they'll spend hours fiddling with them so put a few fiddly clips and other bits and bobs on a blanket (or something similar) and BINGO! Something that will keep your little one amused for ages AND your travelling sanity intact! BRILL!

If you've got some clever and crafty ideas up your sleeve that I haven't thought of, drop me a line and let me know!

What do you think?
