Airplane Activities for Kids
Traveling with kids can be tough! Does anyone get more scared of the plane ride over the actual trip? When I fly with my three, I always plan weeks in advance what I will carry on the plane (the suitcase contents tend to be thought of more last minute!) That being said, I did my research and came up with some Airplane Activities for Kids. These are idea for kids ages 2 and up (though many of them can be modified to fit your younger child!)
When traveling, don’t forget as well, a thin blanket, socks, a cardigan/sweat shirt, and snacks! A happy child is usually a full child and one can never predict what (and even if it comes) will be on the snack cart on the airline! Happy travels!
EVERY TIME the kids and I traveled, I picked up one of these Mosaic Sticker Craft Kids for Kids. They buy time. The buy multiple times because the kids will do one (which takes away), put it away and then move on to do another one later (again it takes awhile.) If you havev little hand sthat can get distracted by this activity, I swear by these mosaic sticker art kits for kids.
