It's been firmly established that Kristen Bell is an amazing human, but her latest mom hack for keeping her kids safe from oncoming traffic is sheer brilliance. 

The actress and mother of two shared her “hands on the circle” mom hack on Instagram earlier this week. Bell illustrated the simplicity of the hack by posting a photo of her two yummy children's (Lincoln and Delta) pudgy little paws touching the circular gas cap door on her car.

In the accompanying caption, Bell explains:

“Hands on the circle!” The phrase we say as we jump out of the car. “Hands on the circle” (the circle is the gas cap) was invented by my brilliant sister in law, and has thus far kept all kiddos safe from any oncoming traffic while I unload the trunk.”

God bless Kristen Bell.
