IT won’t be long before we’re able to enjoy long car trips once more – but with that comes restless kids and often frustrated parents.

But one mum has shared a solution to every parent’s long journey troubles, and it means your little ones can be entertained for the entire car ride.

Mum-of-four Shannon Doherty, who regularly shares genius mum hacks on TikTok, has revealed how a shoe rack is every parent’s saving grace.

“Best MOM HACK!! For CAR RIDES. This is life changing for our fam!!” she wrote alongside the clip.

She said to attach the hanging shoe rack to the back of the seat and fill it with everything your little ones might need for the trip.

“Fill it with dry eraser markers, they come right off windows, snacks, water, hand sanitiser, masks and more,” Shannon explained.

Of course, you can change it up depending on what you want your kids to have but it’s a sure way to keep them entertained for longer – and it’s pretty cheap too.

What’s more, it’s a good way to keep your car organised, so you’ll always be able to find exactly what you need.

Writing in the captions, Shannon said: “We love this hack in my house. My kids are obsessed and it makes car rides so much easier.”

“This is so brilliant, one person commented.

“Obsessed with this,” said another.

Meanwhile, a third wrote: “You are amazing.”
