Weather you have a car full of your own kids or the neighborhood gang, we spend hours a week in the car simply driving these kids around…from school to extracurricular activities, to playdates, running errands.

As crazy as these afternoons can be, here are some ways to make the most of your kids time in the car with sanity-saving tricks, tips and essential products to keep the back seat chill whilst YOU stay calm, cool and collected in the driver's seat. And when you are all finally home enjoy family time!

Give’em their screen time + tech time!  

The HP Pavilion x360  is a tech piece that does it all and literally creates an entertainment theatre with full HD in the back seat that all the kids can see — it morphs from lap top style, to tent to tablet and is infused with durable components for strength and has virtually no visual seams. USB-C enables more connectivity, and an active pen brings Windows Ink to life to create lists, sticky notes, and draw your ideas directly onto the screen.



Bluetooth headphones are a must for each and every kiddo. Skullcandy’s Crusher Wireless Headphones are powered with dual-channel haptic bass providing an immersive experience with bass you can feel. Refined memory foam ear pads enable a noise isolating fit, Bluetooth wireless, and up to 40 hours of battery life. Or their Grind Wireless Headphones boast fab acoustics, also with Bluetooth wireless, 12-hour rechargeable battery and a built-in microphone and remote for call, track and volume control. For momma -- the Women’s Knockout Headphones are sleek with Supreme Sound acoustics, Memory foam ear cushions with Pureclean protection, and in-line microphone and remote to call, track and control volume.



Napster! If it feels like naptime, raise your hands!

Therm-a-rest X Poler mini camp pillow is smooth next-to-skin comfort and cushy foam support, and just the right size for the car + kids craniums.


Sleeping bags for this switch can be overkill -- enter the Rumpl Geo Print Puffy blanket is warmth to the max, the fabric resists water, dirt, odor, and pet hair, and fits easily in an included stuff sack for quick storage.

Set the mood mellow-istic with EO Everyone Aromatherapy Blend Pure Essential Oils in Calm: a relaxing and soothing synergistic blend of Lavender, Orange, and Cedarwood is created to help you slow down and find peace. My other favorite is Relax: a calming and soothing blend of Lavender, Lavandin, Orange, Vetiver, Ylang Ylang and Frankincense.

Justin’s Maple Almond Butter + Pretzel snack packs always please. Noosa mates pairs thick, velvety whole milk yoghurt with delish mix-ins like crunchy granolas, roasted nuts, pretzels and chocolate nibs. Blue Moose of Boulder has a hummus + gluten free chip duo for on-the-go ease. And go double duty with ZOLLIPOPS like a lollipop but supercharged with Xylitol, Erythritol, Stevia and other smile friendly natural ingredients that are actually good for your teeth!
