Toddlers vs babies.
Everyone is always scared to fly with babies but that’s honestly the easiest time. Wear them, feed them, change them, and let them sleep.
We have been flying with our kids since newborn, plus numerous road trips. But when it comes to a about a 12 hour travel day between 2 flights, layovers, and 2 hour dry, plus time change we have to be prepared.
Even for shorter flights these are great activities to keep the kids busy and occupied.
Now the kids are older and excited about traveling and going on a plane and we are going to be gone 20 days. Just under 3 weeks with some driving and flights in between.
So we got the kids their own new suitcases to carry on and do 2 big bags checked, well because I over pack.
I’m from Texas where it’s just hot as hell in summer, Canada can be 80 in the day and 50 at night (brrrr) so I need all the options.
These suitcases from pottery barn are the perfect size to take on the plane for the kids and get them so excited to travel and make them feel big!
Our 4 year old is obsessed with mazes at the moment, it might not be handwriting but it’s practicing with a pen and keeping off technology for a short time.
These are actually great for both kids and reusable. It’s like clay but in a stick and easy to travel with and share.
Y’all these cameras have been so fun for the kids. We got them back in October when we were traveling to Disney world for their birthdays. They have used them regularly. They not only take pictures and videos, they can make filters as well as play games.
Y’all Melissa and Doug is always a go to for us for toys at home and traveling activities. We got the magnetic puzzle and reusable sticker book set. Our daughter is obsessed with stickers, our son was too at this age.
Another great Melissa and Doug product ! We got these for our son. Mess free and technology free.
This toy set from small fish on amazon is a new purchase. But movement and sensory of the toys should be interesting and new to the kids. Will post an update on the kids interaction with them.
We will also bring iPads and a few “surprise toys.”
We also have some toddler headphones from amazon. Blue for our son his are actually bluetooth capable and charge or can use cord. Our daughter has a cheaper pink pair with cord.
If you are traveling with younger toddlers as well and need some tips, message me.
We use to fly with car seats on board, this will be the first time that we don’t. But we have all the tips on that too!!
Where are your summer plans?!?
