We have just booked our first family holiday abroad for October 2018 and to say I'm apprehensive about flying with the boys goes without saying!
I asked some of my fellow bloggers for any tips and things we should do while in the air! We will be sat two and two, so I will have Freddie who will be almost three when we go and Andy will have James who will be six.
Amy from www.thesmallestofthings.com said - Take lots of snacks because the airport and airplane will be very boring for young children!
Elaine from www.entertainingelliot.com said - Sticker books! I literally don't travel without them, they are a brilliant boredom buster!
Kati from www.howtorockatparenting.wordpress.com said - With babies and toddlers, have plenty to drink, a dummy and lots of food and toys to entertain them. It's easier with older children, especially once they get off your lap. Colouring books, books in general or a little homemade 'I spy' booklet is plenty, as long as the first flight isn't too long.
Sarah from http://surreymama.com/ said - Take snacks and when you think you have enough, take more. They can help with sore ears (Ella’s smoothies for example), they can prevent a tantrum and if fussy eaters keep them going until the next meal
Kelly from http://www.reducedgrub.com has been a stewardess for over 20 years and has wrote this fantastic post on traveling with Children! I can see this being read and reread before we go away!
Thanks for all the tips folks! I can see us using a lot of them on our upcoming travels!
