  • Video games for the older one, a book to read to the kiddies, a teddy, coloring booksw/crayons, snacks without sugar such as bananas, apples or other fruits. A quick talk with the kids telling them how to behave on such a long flight can also help. Travel board games can also come in handy.

  • Toys that arent too loud. and snacks. and make sure you have something for their "night time". like if your 6 yo sleeps with a teddy, bring the teddy.

  • oh. and on a side note. ...it may be worth talking to your 2yo about going on a plane. try to watch a video about airplanes and talk about what happens. your LO might not understand everything but it will certianly help! My DS flew with my to Korea. that's a 13 hour flight.

  • Is it just you or will you have another adult with all of you?

  • Movies, snacks, handheld games, and things like that. I traveled 6-7 hourd with one lay over with my kids when they were 3,4 and 7. My 4 and 7 yr old brought their gameboys and some games, coloring books, books to read, and now when we do long road trips we bring movies for portable dvd players etc. Maybe you can see if they let you bring that on the plane.
