With just a matter of days before we go abroad I thought I would put together a post all about what I'm packing in Noah's flight bag. I struggle with boredom on a flight and in the airport so I knew well in advance I would have to pack lots of different things to keep a two and a half year old occupied and happy on our journey!
Lots of snacks:
First of all and most importantly it has to be snacks! I've packed a variety of Noah's favourites; Goodies fruit and oat bars, Goodies raisins, Fruit Bowl blackcurrant yoghurt flakes, Little Dish Go Go's and Bear Paws fruit shapes. One the morning we leave I will also be packing some savoury snacks like cheese sticks, crackers and also a cup of water.
Up second we have an activity bundle. A sticker book, find and seek book, soft toy and lotto mini game. The sticker book cost next to nothing and just had to be included in our bag as stickers are always a hit with Noah. The Things to Spot book is something I hope Noah will enjoy to do whilst on the plane as he loves anything like that. The Little Bus Lotto game was recently sent to us from Orchard Toys to celebrate their brand new range of mini games. Little Bus Lotto looks like a game that Noah will really enjoy both at home and on the go. Lastly we have the little soft toy which Noah has recently become very fond of and has named Mouse? Lucky Mouse gets a free trip to Majorca!
Thomas & Friends goodies:Up next we have a bunch of Thomas & Friends goodies. A sticker activity book, carry along colouring set and mini train surprise bags. I won the sticker book and carry along set a while back but luckily discovered them this week when sorting the house! I picked up a couple of Thomas & Friends Mini's too because Noah like most toddlers is obsessed with surprise eggs and blind bags so I know they'll keep him occupied on the flight.
As you can see I'm trying to cover all bases by packing everything that I know Noah plays with often so if he gets bored with one thing we can easily switch to something else. I've packed four of his favourite cars, a small Buzz Lightyear and a couple of different surprise bags.
Noah's prized possession:
Now we couldn't travel anywhere without Noah's favourite thing in the whole wide world, his Kiki. He will be packed in his hand luggage to be at hand for snuggle time and I so hope we don't lose him while we are abroad! And if all this fails I will have my iPad at the ready! Haha!
Do you have any suggestions on what to include in my toddlers flight bag?
