Okay, I know we have discuss this many times but I need ideas for the flight. We are flying in Aug right after Preston 1st Birthday and I need ideas but simple ideas for entertainment. When we flew with just Aiden he was a lot younger and it was night time so he slept and was ever easy to entertain. Now we have a 2 1/2 year old and a 1 year old.
Books is on my list but I want some other ideas but they must be small and simple. Not a lot of parts involved. Aiden likes to throw toys, we can't be doing that on the flight.
I know Cyndee just flew home... What did you bring for entertainment and how did the flight go with Maddie.
Anyone else has advise... I would love to hear it.
Portable DVD player, ipod touch, memory cards or flash cards, picture books, lift the flap book, travel sized magna doodle, silly putty, snacks, blanket and small pillow or security object to encourage a nap, killed the most time for us.
How long is the flight? When we fly it's only a 2 1/2 hour flight so I usually just bring the portable DVD player and at least a couple movies. That plus snacks. Travel size magna doodle, a couple of his favorite cars and usually 1 new toy that he hasn't seen before!
We're flying in September and I'm already scared to death to do it by myself with a 1 month old and a toddler.
I just flew from Denver to Virginia and then had a 2 1/2 drive to the Outer Banks with both kids. My one year old was harder to entertain. Hunter was great with the portable dvd player, coloring book, books, and play dough. Brooke was better with lots of snacks, books, and she played a long time with plastic cups that the flight attendant gave us to occupy her. Both kids were awake the entire plane ride, but slept through the drive, which worked out well. Good luck on your flight!
