As the first term of school comes to an end, one father has shared a neat tip on how he taught his adorable toddler how to put his coat on without any assistance.
This hack is a sure-fire way to help ease the post-Christmas back-to-school rush for parents each morning.
Leo's mum Louise Thompson - sister of incoming I'm A Celebrity star Sam Thompson - shared the adorable video on social media, and her fiance Ryan has since received heaps of praise online for his clever coat trick.
"Our nursery taught us this genius hack to try at home", Louise captioned the heart-warming video.
He then tells Leo to lean forward and put his arms through the holes, and then lift the coat over his head, with the coat subsequently sliding down the youngsters arms and keeping him warm.
"Good boy!" Ryan then smothers him with kisses. "You did it, you did it! You clever little sausage!"
Fans were quick to praise the duo for their genius hack, with many describing the movement as 'the montessori coat flip', inspired by the late Italian educator of the same name.
One gushed: "I'm a preschool teacher and this is how we teach our children to put their own coats on. Wins every time!"
A second wrote, "I'm using that one [laughing emojis], while another teased: "Me as an adult, taking notes".
But not all viewers were convinced of the trick.
"My son was taught this at nursery. I had to stop him chucking his coat on dirty floors to put it on," one commented on the video.
A second went on: "ours told us to put the hood on your head and put your arms in after. fancy doing that on a wet floor on a rainy day."
Ryan and Louise's handy parenting hack comes just days after another TikTok star shared an easy way to wrap Christmas gifts that don't have the luxury of coming in a box.
“Yeah it’s easy to wrap things shaped as a box, wrap something difficult,” she said on one of her posts a while back.
Tracie took on the challenge and decided to wrap an electric whisk after taking it out of its box.
She used a piece of cardboard, tape, scissors and, you guessed it, wrapping paper to show how quick it can be to wrap.
Tracie begins by placing the electric whisk on the piece of cardboard and cutting a piece to that matches the size of the base of the appliance.
She then uses this piece of cardboard to measure and cut how much wrapping paper she needs.
The next step sees Tracie fold the ends of the wrapping paper to the centre and taping the ends in place to create what looks like a sleeve, before folding the bottom half up.
She then folds the corners and tapes the bottom part of the sleeve to create a flat bottom for the electric whisk to sit on top of the piece of cardboard from earlier.
For the final step, Tracie places the electric sleeve inside the wrapping paper and folds and tapes the corners and the top opening.
Voila! A perfectly wrapped electric whisk.
