Carry On

Secure your kids' toys in a tote that's made for traveling. (Make sure it's safely attached to the seat.) Nix tiny items that get lost easily, and pack books, markers, and games instead. To keep crumbs out of crevices, place a plastic protector underneath the car seat. It's easy to wipe clean, and it'll save your upholstery too.
