I drive a Honda Odyssey, with 4 kids in it. All of them are in car seats. They are ages 6, 3, 1, 1. My house is very organized and I like it that way, but the van is killing me.
Here are my problems. My two oldest are in the far back. I need them to be able to get to the things they want on their own (books, toys, etc) But since they are in carseats, they can't be stored in the pockets in the seats in front of them. They can't be stored between the seats, because it is too far down for them to reach. My oldest can reach stuff on the side near her window, but my 3 year old can't. Any ideas for making things reachable for them.
The trunk is awesome, but it is so deep and wide it is like a cavern. I have my cloth grocery bags, double stroller, little potty, extra diapers, sling back there. I feel like it all gets jumbled all teh time.
I'd love some sort of bins or something that could hold just car toys. But still let the kids walk easily on the floor.
How do you organize your van?
