You’re probably thinking, “Me? Put my phone in a plastic bag? No way. I need to use it for directions or listen to music!” That’s what I thought too. But this method works so well that I can even enjoy the drive because my kids are quiet and happy, especially if they have little screens!

You don't have to do anything fancy—just put your phone in a plastic bag (I use sandwich bags), tuck it up behind the headrest of your passenger seat, and let the kids play with it. And folks in the comments were in love with this idea.

"This is next level genius!!" @Charlie & Harriett

"Soooo clever!!" @Sarah

In a time of iPads everywhere and screens in cars, this hack is nothing short of genius. Your kid will love using his or her device. You can save money by not having to buy a separate iPad or another tablet for your travel needs. And you'll still be able to use your phone while it's in the bag!

Try this trick if you have a little one who won't sit still on car rides. It's simple and inexpensive, but it can make all the difference in how much fun your kids have on family trips!
