For anybody traveling with kids, flying is a clear challenge. After all, children have little room to move around on a plane, making it especially difficult for them to stay put on international and long-haul flights. Here are some techniques to make flying with kids easier.

Bring Some Toys

Once you get your kids settled into their seats, surprise them with some new toys. Not only will this provide them with something to play with to pass the time, but the surprise on its own will distract them from the reality that they don’t have much place to run around.

Pack Some Comfortable Earphones

One form of entertainment that airlines provide to parents and children alike is the in-flight entertainment screen, filled with movies and TV shows. If you plan on letting your child watch TV while you fly, be sure to pack some comfortable earphones for them so that they can watch in comfort, especially over such a long journey.

Bring Snacks

Children need nutrition thought the day, meaning that the minimal snacks and meals that airlines provide throughout the flight may not be enough for your little ones. Make sure to pack enough small snacks and fruit and vegetables so that your kids get the food they need.
