Looking for some tips on traveling with a 4 and 5 y/o on a plane for the first time. We unfortunately will have 2 layovers both ways (melbourne FL to Bozeman MT)
What is your go to carry on packing list?
Here is what I'm thinking:
gum (for the ear popping)
books to read
electronic device ( our 5 y/o has a kindle and my husband is suggesting we bring an old ipad for the 4 y/o but i'm nervous about losing these plus we have to lug their charging cords with us but if worth it will make it happen) OR video game system (they also have a mobi go)
blankie or comfort toy
Does anyone swear by any travel gadgets (like a travel pillow, ear plugs, etc)
I'm also nervous about all the walking they'll be doing in the airports. They tend to be like lead weights when they don't want to cooperate and are WAY too big to carry, so I've seen these ride on carry on seats (like a lawn chair that straps onto the carry on) and was considering getting 2 for them; any thoughts or anyone with any experience with these?
I'm not planning on packing booster seat/car seat as we aren't renting a car and the coach service we are using allows for car seat rental. From What I understand everything we need will be onsite so we won't be travelling/driving around the area too much.
