+ Stick sticks through the lids of yoghurt pots and freeze. The simple
ideas are the best.
+ Surprise everyone on a mid-journey layby stop with personalised
picnics-in-jars - one screw-topped jar per person stuffed with their
fave munchy bits will enthrall the grumpiest of travellers.
+ Mini boxes of cereal can have their sides snipped to make a makeshift
bowl before adding a drop of milk to the bag. Fun and practical.
