5 Ways To Entertain A Toddler During Long Flights

Could be worth a try.

  1. A New Toy

Being a mother of a 4-year-old, I have discovered a neat trick. I buy small toys for him and wait until we get to the plane, or the car or the bank; basically anywhere a toddler may find utterly boring; before I give it to him.  Bring surprise toys you can pull out when needed to continue distracting your child that he is confined to a belted seat for the day.  Great examples would be those surprise egg toys, a mini etch-a-sketch or even small toy figures.  Don’t bring it all out at once.  Use it sparingly.  Knowing children, they will be entertained by a new toy for about an hour or two and then slowly get fed up with it, then that’s the time you introduce the next toy as a distraction.
