5 hour flight!!

My daughter has been on a plane 4 times already and isnt even 2. She has only flown 2hrs at a time and has been an angel. We are going on a 5hr flight to CA for Thanksgiving and I am terrified of how to keep her from getting antsy. Besides dvds and coloring, does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep it a smoothe flight??? TIA

  • We took a 6 hour flight to CA when my little boy was about a year and half. Go to dollar tree or a similar store and buy a few little toys that she has never played with before and give them to her when she starts to get antsy. It's fun to wrap them and make it fun for her to open and it will gain her interest for longer. Also bring lots of snacks and drinks. Have fun! We are flying at christmas with a 2 year old and a 6 month old..woohoo!
