bring some toys, if possible, ones they've never seen before. Bring 1 comfort item to help them sleep at night. Make sure you have a sippy cup/bottle and ask the stewardess to fill it up with juice/milk/water before take off so they can drink which will help their ears pop and adjust to the pressure change.

Snacks, toys and a change of clothes for all of you. (Cuz you never know if something will get spilled on you.) 1 diaper per every hour that you plan to travel per child. If they take a pacifier be sure to bring that cuz cabin pressure on take off and landings can be hell on their ears.

Definitely pacifier or bottle or cup to suck/chew on to help with pressure.  If you want to bring a stroller - do it!  They are so helpful in the airport and you can gate check them.  No problem.  Toys that can be chewed on - plenty of diapers and a change (or two) of clothes in case of accidents.
