Airplane Activities for Kids
Flying with kids just got a little more fun!
Keep your kids busy on the plane with simple, open-ended activities. With only a few items from home needed, and the rest found on the plane- bring the Airplane Box with you, and you’re set.
The Airplane Box includes 60 simple activities. If you choose one activity every 5 minutes, your kids will be occupied for 5 hours! Is your flight longer than 5 hours? Increase the time between activities.
Here are the items you will need:
Snack (like a cheerio, cracker, sunflower seed), pen & pencil , paper (any size), napkin or tissue, coin (any size), airsick bag, blanket (ask for one), straw (ask for one), cup (ask for one…or, you can use any kind of small empty container, or in a pinch- an adults hand).
The Airplane Box is small and will fit easily into a purse or bag. If you have a lay-over, many of the activities can be used as is or adjusted to fit your environment.
Here are just a couple of the activities you will find in the box:
•Toss wadded up tissues/paper into a cup
•How long can you balance a snack on your nose, finger, etc.
•Have a staring contest
•Feel your heartbeat
