13 Ways to Keep Kids Occupied on a Flight
10. Word games
You’d be surprised at how many fun games you can play with just a piece of paper, and a pen or pencil. Tic tac toe, Pictionary, Dots and Boxes, Word ladders, and so many other games. You can even search online and print out some of them beforehand to take with you.
11. Pillow and Blanket
Kids might find it hard to sleep in unfamiliar surroundings, so take along their favorite pillow and blanket to make them a bit more comfortable while onboard. Chances are after all the coloring, board games, and puzzles, they will be more than happy to hit the hay.
12. Bring Snacks
“I absolutely love airplane food,” said no one ever! Kids can get miserable if they are hungry so make sure to bring a bag filled with some of their favorite snacks to keep them calm and full while on the flight. Keep in mind that while they’re eating that’s another hour or so that they are occupied and distracted.
