WE all know how tough it is to keep young kids entertained for long car journeys – and with a summer full of staycations on the horizon, it’s never been more important to keep the kids quiet in the back seat.

Tiktok user Whitney shared the hack and impressed her viewers with just how easy the technique is.

Firstly, you have to get a normal zip-lock bag and pop your tablet inside with some child-friendly content playing on the screen.

Then, simply punch two holes in the bag and hang it from the two posts attached to your car seat headrest. 

This way, your child can watch to their heart’s content, without accidentally turning off the tablet every two minutes.
