Flying with Kids!

Flying with kids goes more smoothly when the flight is planned and children understand what to expect when flying. When you fly with children, remember that flying is confining and kids are energetic. Explain flying and work off energy first, then entertain kids during flight for the best trips.

Flying With Kids.

If you want your flying vacation to go smoothly, start by allowing ample time before the flight. If your children are flying for first-time fliers, you will need even more time to take in this new experience.

If you plan to fly on your next trip with your children, prior preparations will make flying more pleasant. Yes, you are confined in a small amount of space when you fly. Yes, your children will get restless when they fly. Yes, your flight will be more pleasant if you explain the ins-and-outs of flying ahead of time. This is particularly important the first time your child flies but a review before every flight will be helpful.

Allow time before flight.

If you want your flying vacation to go smoothly, start by allowing ample time before the flight. If your children are flying for first-time fliers, you will need even more time to take in this new experience.

Review 1-2-3- Magic

 

Flying with kids goes more smoothly when the flight is planned and children understand what to expect when flying. When you fly with children, remember that flying is confining and kids are energetic. Explain flying and work off energy first, then entertain kids during flight for the best trips.

Work off energy before flying.

Flying will be more pleasant if children work off energy before boarding. Use every opportunity to walk and move around before boarding.

1. Let children walk with you from parking the car. Watch planes flying into the clouds while you walk around.

2. Don’t try to have children sit quietly while waiting for the plane. Obviously they have to be supervised and civilized while waiting for the flight. Go from window to window. Watching planes take off and fly into the sky entertains almost any age child.

 

Check luggage first, then park car.

It is easier than trying to carry luggage and herd children at the same time.

Bring a child safety seat for infants and toddlers.

Often, even if you do not buy a seat for that child, the plane will not be full and the child can have a separate seat. Flying is safer for infants and toddlers if you purchase a seat.

Take children to bathroom before boarding and landing.

When the captain has the seat belt sign on, children can not leave their seats even for nature. Explain this before you fly and they might not even use the bathroom as an excuse for roaming around.

Let children take turns at the window.

The window is the best place to sit on the air plane. Make certain every child has a chance to see the world from a great distance above the earth. Also, let kids enjoy the experience of take-off or landing.

Arrange for children to trade places to share parents.

This travel time is an opportunity for some quality time with each child. Plus, children who are enjoying uninterrupted attention from Mom or Dad are less likely to grow restless while flying.

Bring toys, books, and games for the flight.

Small wrapped presents are good attention grabbers when traveling. They also help to break the time into small segments: the time between gifts.
