Air travel with kids can be an adventure. Trying to keep them quiet and entertained with media, books, and a bag full of snacks can be stressful…. until now! I created this FUN little packet to help give kids something interesting to do while traveling in the air. Yes, they will play video games and YES, they will watch movies on the iPad…BUT if I can cut down on media time, I will be happy. This unit is sure to keep them busy AND QUIET while they work through pages and have some friendly competition with each other. This resource will get their brains working while having fun and being creative!
This is KID TESTED AND APPROVED!!!! Our family recently went on a 16 day trip where we drove through many states for MANY hours (some 8-10 hr drives!). I combined pages from this resource as well as my “On The Road Again” unit and my kids LOVED it! It kept them busy while they had a great time working together through some of the pages. They DID NOT even pick up any sort of media for the two 8 hour drives that we had!!! THAT alone was a SUCCESS for us!!!
This resource has almost NO PREP! I have 3 active kids so anything I find for them to do has to be FAST and EASY to put together…and it better keep them busy….like for hours….even DAYS! I put the pages in plastic sheet protectors so that they can be used over and over again. After, I put it in a 3 ring binder. Then all you need is a dry erase marker, an old sock (for an eraser), and a sheet of paper (optional). THAT’S IT!!!
I know that your kids will also love this resource as they work through each page (almost 50 pages of quietness… I mean FUN!! :) . And you??? You just might be able to enjoy your flight and maybe get in a little nap, read a book, or watch a movie. The only thing you have to think about now is what are you going to do with all your spare time? :)
