To help with the talking-about-the-upcoming-holiday and the recent rebirth of Carseat Hatred, I picked up some Halloween themed window gels from Target. $1.99 bought pumpkins and black cats, spiders and stars. While they are labled ages 3+, she can’t reach them while she’s strapped into her car seat. Instead, she sees them and sings Halloween songs to me while I drive. Everybody wins!
10/27 Edited to Add: Hello Parent Hackers! In the comments section on the Parent Hacks site, wiser heads than mine (thank you, HDC) have pointed out that these window gels are not recommended for car windows as tempretures over 100 will cause them to melt. While this isn’t an issue in a Seattle Fall, those in warmer climates will want to reconsider. Perhaps some similairly-themed static cling decals will do the trick for you?
