  • 6. Keep the whole thing small and manageable - so it stays under your seat (you don't want to get up each time you get a new activity). Harness may be useful for some toddlers, especially in crowded airports

  • Some great examples that worked for our monster (we've done several cross-Pacific flights)

    - reusable sticker books
    - wallet with fake money
    - "who is this?" photo book of your family and people your toddler is familiar with - use a cheap photo book service, create a mini book of 10 pages or so, put a person's (or a pets) photo on each page, make your toddler guess who/what each photo is
    - coloring books
    - magnetic drawing board
    - new mini truck, train, etc
    - new toy that requires fine motor skills (and concentration skills)
    - and of course, his favorite books and regular toys

  • Bon Voyage!!
