Default Morning Routine

I drive my son to school every morning meaning that I have to take an infant, 2 toddlers, & a preschooler with us. I find that the 20 minutes it takes me to get everyone's coats, hats, gloves, shoes, etc on & everyone to the car is so stressful. We have a good morning routine. But I might get one kid totally ready only to turn around & find that another kiddo has taken their shoes back off. Or they're ready & then head back to the play area making a mess of toys while I'm helping others with shoes. Is there a better way to do this? Should it take this long to get them out the door? I was thinking of putting a rug near the door with a basket of books for a designated area to stay in once you're ready. Their ages are 19mo, a new 2, & a 3 yo. Is that realistic to teach them to sit quietly on the rug once ready? They're not a rowdy group, but they like to roam around. Any suggestions? TIA
