KEEPING up with, feeding, and entertaining multiple kids while on the move is no easy feat, but one crafty mom has got it down packed.
Mom of three, Jaquelin Castillo often shares mom hacks with her 950.5k TikTok followers to help them out when they’re on the road.
In a video posted to her account, the first tip Castillo shared was using Dollar Tree containers as the perfect fast food holders for when you’re on the go.
This will help keep McDonalds meals organized and leave your kids’ tummies happy.
Up next was a pencil pouch holder held up by carabiners. This makes an ideal behind the seat iPad stand so that your kids could watch their favorite shows hands free.
Finally, the savvy mom recommended wagons filled with snacks. Her wagon has multiple configurations, and she always keeps a car vacuum for it incase bits of food get into it.
Fellow parents in the comments were grateful for the tips.
“The iPad car holder! I had to resort to rubber bands last time lol. Great idea!” someone noted.
“Did you like go to mom college or something? Btw love these ideas,” another praised.
A grateful viewer said: “Car vaccuumm????? Why in the world did I never think of that, thank you!!!!”
“The pencil pouch is genius! My 18 month old daughter likes to throw my phone,” someone else said.
“The fact that you have Backyardigans playing on the iPad/tablet, you already got me. My oldest still loves them. Love all the hacks,” another mentioned.
If you’re looking to travel to the beach and don’t want the hassle of having to watch your items while you enjoy the water with your kids, mommy bloggers, who are mainly known as Crafty Moms on social media, shared their solution: a baby diaper.
You simply place your keys, money, wallet, and phone inside the diaper and roll it up.
No one will ever suspect that your valuables are in there.
Following the mom hack, people took to the comments section with good humor.
One mom quipped: “Yes, but also my husband would throw it away!”
“Add a little melted chocolate on the outside,” another joked.
“Until you forget and throw away your stuff,” a third mused.
And a fourth commenter stated: “Then I will forget it’s a clean diaper and will probably throw it away (mom life).”
