Today, I will board a plane with 3 little boys; ages 6,5 and 1. I am not taking the task lightly, and have been training for several days. I've been fine tuning my agility, endurance, patience, and most importantly: My ability to quickly bribe my toddler with a sugary treat, should he start to go bananas. Pray for me, and the other passengers on the plane. This could be a very long two hours.

How do you keep your children occupied on plane rides?

We used new coloring books, sticker books, mini-magna doodles, went to the library picked out new books to read. Good luck!

Anna said...

Oh my goodness, I feel for you. Same as Tesa said lots of new books and coloring pages and snacks.
We had a 10 day road trip with our toddlers I have an article about it on my blog.
It's a good thing it's only two hours they can also have a walk down the aisle and say hi to other passengers. I know in longer flights people get board and like seeing a to chat with little children.
Good luck

Thanks for the advice ladies! My oldest boys did really well. My 1 year old... Let's just say I'm sure many people hated me on the plane.

Jackie: Thank You! I will check out your blog tomorrow (when I am on a PC vs Blackerry)
