Keep things organized (and your kids entertained) on summer road trips with this simple solution. Purchase an over-the-door shoe organizer and tie it with ribbon to the back of the front seat. Fill the pockets with games, books, toys, coloured pencils and snacks so your child can access them all by herself. This may just mark the end of, “Are we there yet?”
