I have flown with my son before about 4 or 5 times, he has his own seat and we are going to put him next to the window so he can stand up and look out.
Well I need suggestions on what to bring and do with him. A movie/tv show will only last maybe an hour. Flight is about 3-4hrs and the drive would be about 7-8 hrs. The flight is during the day and he doesnt take naps anymore so that wont work. He will more then likely go to sleep in the car. I just don't know anymore. I have coloring books books to read portable dvd player what else am I forgetting?

We have taken MANY LONG (18-24 hours) road trips throughout my youngest boys lives. Here is what we did. We took our laptop so that they could watch cd's, play games......., we also took coloring books and artsy stuff they can color and draw and such, we also packed two bags each (bought those insulated lunch bags because they were the perfect size) they filled them up with toys and they'd play with one bag and when bored with those toys we'd switch the bag so they were playing with "new toys", we got books on dvd to play so they could listen and be read to, we played eye spy (age appropriate) game (like, do you see a tree, a green car, a blue van...) and of course snacks!! I hope this helps!
