I might be flying to California this summer with my kiddos to visit my sister. I have flown a few times with my kids, but the last time, they were 3 and 1 years old, so I could nurse my baby on ascent and descent and gave my 3 year old a sippy cup to drink on ascent and descent and it helped good. I also tried Earplanes, but they didn't like them.
Now they are 8 and 5 and my 8 year old can chew gum, but neither one knows how to "pop" their ears.
Do you all have any suggestions on how I can help them learn this before/if we go?
I know now not to overpack as I did before LOL.
Also, any travel toy suggestions for the flight?
