14 hours in the air with a 2yr old and a 7mo old... sounds like a horror story right? Wrong! Ohdeedoh reader, Maegan Boyle, sent us word about her recent extended flight time which happened smoothly thanks to some help from an activity pack. It not only kept her oldest entertained for hours in the air, but is still in high demand now that they are back home. Details on her inexpensive and great find after the jump...
Although visiting Australia is sure to be packed with loads of fun and adventure, the flight getting there can seem a bit daunting, even for adults! Maegan has been kind enough to share her secret weapon for combating long flights for children ages 2 and up.
Before leaving Maegan ordered a Lil Traveler Activity Pack. In it was all sorts of small space friendly activities geared to take a half hour each. Just long enough to keep curious minds entertained and wandering minds focused.
Each pack contains a variety of items such as coloring books, stickers, foam art crafts, felt pens and crayons, puzzles and playing cards. They would be great for planes, trains and automobiles alike, or any time you want to keep little ones engrossed in something other than Finding Nemo... for the 400th time. Lil Traveler has two signature packs priced at $9.95, one developed for kids aged 3-5 years (although her 2 year old handed it just fine) and another aimed at 6-8 year olds.
Maegan purchased it before leaving and stashed it away so it couldn't be found ahead of time! After playing with it on the long flights each way, it's still asked for daily!
