How do I keep my children amused and quiet on an aeroplane?
I have just booked our first spring/summer holiday with all the
family (two daughters 4 and 2). Both of our children have never been on an
aircraft before and I am concerned as to how they will react. Does any parent
have any advice as to how we keep them occupied during the 3 hour flight? Our 4
year old is very shy and I want this to be a pleasant and fun experience for
her. We plan to take them to see planes at the airport so they can become a
little more accustomed to the sound and smells associated with air travel. Also
perhaps equally as worrying is should the girls become agitated and cry etc., how
do we deal with other passengers? I have been on flights before and I know that putting up with other peoples noisy children can be very inconvenient.
