1.     NAPS-Try to get the kids to take a nap. Hopefully the nap will take up most of the flight time. Luckily my kids get lulled to sleep by the background noise of the engines. Sometimes though the flight is WAAAAYYYYYY longer than the nap. Then you need to utilize the other tools in your aresenal.

2.     Bring all of the electronic devices you own. And make sure they’re fully charged. In fact when I travel with my kids I even brought an old Nintendo DS that I have. I haven’t used that thing in years but it was great for the kids.

3.     One thing that I learned from other parent blogs and posts is to bring some inexpensive brand new toy or activity.  The kids get so excited to open something new.  And they are more likely to be interested in a new toy longer. The surprise of something new also gets the excitement going.

4.     INVISIBLE INK PENS AND COLORING BOOKS! This was a great discovery for me on my last trip with my kids.  I had forgotten all about these types of books. It was pure luck that I ran across a few of these books in a CVS. BEST PURCHASE EVER!!! It kept my kids entertained for half the flight. The books were awesome because they entertained both children.  I also didn’t have to worry if my 1.5yo wanted to try coloring the seat or tray.  The ink didn’t work on anything but the book it came with! My 5 yo loved it as well. She loved getting surprised by the colors and it even had sticker puzzles. The puzzles helped her practice her number recognition.

5.     Don’t forget the snacks. I have found that if you get a bunch of different snacks there's bound to be something they will want. Of course these have to be easy to eat snacks since they are young kids. I also pre packed the snacks in small zip lock baggies. Easier clean up and you don't have to worry about resealing or tying bags.

6.     When traveling with more than one child, be sure to have enough toys/activities for all kids. For example: I had 2 invisible coloring books so each of my kids could have their own book.  You don’t want the kids to start having a “mine, no mine” fight on an airplane.

7.     Be prepared to switch activities and switch them often. Kids usually have short attention spans. I have been on some long flights or rides where we started coloring then switched to the Nintendo, then went back to coloring. Stopped to eat and back to playing again.

8.     Bring infant or toddler Tylenol on the plane. Always have this on hand just in case your child does not adjust well to the small cabin, recycled air and elevation. I made the mistake of not bringing this once and I could feel my 1 yo burning up.  I felt so bad because I did not have anything to help him. He was burning and uncomfortable.  Luckily there was another mom on the flight who had some.

I also have some tips specific to traveling with young children by yourself. But that will be for another day.

I think any one in the category of six years old and younger needs extra care when going to different places for the first time. My four year old always catches a cold whenever we visit a new place. It's not that I don't believe in science but I think and kind of feel that the spirits on that place are really fascinated with kids. This is why they tend to disturb them more. Maybe it wasn't intentional. It's just trying to connect burns up a lot of energy and the kids get tired.

I still consider myself inexperienced when it comes to these things. I love it when other members are trying to help me in trying to keep my son busy whenever I need to speak to different people. They say I should always bring a box of crayons and coloring books whenever I bring him outside our house. It would be nice if I no longer need to work because the only reason why I am working is so I can take him to beautiful places.
