4 – Plastic Bags, Always keep a stash of plastic bags for rubbish in the car.

5 – Little Surprises for positive reinforcement. Start your trip on a positive note and reinforce good behaviour. Why not head into your local $2 shop and purchase a few little surprises. For the girls some play braclets & necklaces, Fairy wands. For the boys some play cars and trucks. As a very special reward have their favourite DVD on standby.
