Car Seat Poncho

It's annoying when you have to take off coats to put your kids in their seats, then at your next stop take the kids out of their seats and put their coats back on.  I know it's for safety; I'm a rear-facing advocate (all of my boys were rear-facing until 2) and my oldest is 44" tall and still in a 5-point harness.  I'm still annoyed, especially when it's raining and cold.

They are very easy to make.  It took about 6-8 hours to make all three.
