3 hour layover with a 2 year old-AAAAH!!

The last time with flew, the 3 hour layover was close to a disaster. I was tired and just wanted to rest. My 2 year old, on the other hand, wanted to run around. I was totally bored out of my skull, and as far as I knew, there was no play area.

The next time we fly, our return flight will once again include that dumb 3 hour layover!! Any ideas on making it a more enjoyable time for the both of us?

  • Movies on a laptop. If you have an ipod put kiddie songs on it and a movie. Get the ear phones that go over the ears not in. Coloring books, crayons, little cars (i know its a girl, but she can drive them on the floor), her favorite snacks, small dollar store toys she has never played with.
