YOU no longer have to hear "are we there yet?" over and over again on long road trips.
Daisy Woods, a parenting expert and mother of two, has shared a video revealing her tricks for keeping her little ones busy while on a road trip.
Woods recommended using a tablet to keep little ones entertained in the car for longer periods of time.
"We download films, games, and TV programs," she said.
If you're looking for screen-free entertainment, Woods suggested using an audio player in place of a tablet.
She shared that you can use the audio player to listen to music, books, or fun facts, which isn't only fun but also educational for your young ones.
Woods next recommended placing a storage carrier in the middle seat to store all of your children's items.
She uses the carrier to store toys, drinks, snacks, books, and whatever else her children might need access to while in the backseat.
For a cheaper option, she said you can just fill up a box and place it in the middle seat.
To add some excitement to the car ride, the parenting expert recommended making a box of car toys.

She said to make these toys specific for car use, meaning your children only have access to them while in their car seats.
"They're just saved for car journeys so they are new and fresh," said Woods.
To help break up the time, Woods said to bring surprise packages along for the ride.
She said to bring out a new surprise package every 30 minutes or so to keep the car ride exciting.
For more car ride fun, she recommended looking online for free printable templates of road trip Bingo to play as you go.
To keep kids entertained while snacking, she suggested using a pill organizer to break up snacks by color or type, making it mess-free and even more fun for your children.
"Water Magic books are great for mess-free painting," she said and can be bought on Amazon for just around $6.
