ALL OUR BAGS ARE PACKED…

0 Permalink

We’re taking our annual trip down to Florida this week and instead of running around like a chicken with my head cut off I started packing the day after Thanksgiving.  No exaggeration.  Now I’m feeling (slightly) more calm about getting three human bodies out of the door with everything we need.  I started a Facebook discussion on which suitcases were best for kids since they are both at an age where they can drag their own (we’ve arrived!) I was intrigued by the ones they could sit on but after reading your opinions on the matter I opted out of buying the Trunki:
This one also interested me: RIDE-ON CARRY-ON – BLACK (FAMILY TRAVEL JUST GOT EASIER AND KIDS LOVE IT!) but alas I didn’t order it in time.  We’ll end up going with your basic hard shell SuperHero and Frozen suitcases from Target.  Also, this.

Here are my top 5 “Must-Have’s” when flying with kids

5. A good set of headphones

(..along with associated electronics to keep them from kicking the seat and/or climbing under people’s feet and/or well, here.)

Our go-to brand of headphones for kids is LilGadgets, they are great.

4. The Clean Teeth Lollipop
Yup there’s such a thing:

3. Sticker books
When in doubt – always with the stickers. (I like the reusable ones for obvious reasons especially on a plane.)

2. Cheerios and Dental Floss.
Have them string a necklace. Weird, right?  But trust me, it will take up a lot of time and hey it even doubles as a snack.

1. Hand Sanitizer
And I don’t just use it for their hands.  I wipe down the trays and the armrests and the headrests, too. I wish I could bathe them in it after we get off the plane.  Call me neurotic but no one wants a sick kid on vacation, right?
