Flying With Kids

We took an eight-hour flight home from England last night (and it was loooong), but thankfully I remembered my mom’s tried-and-true way to entertain kids on planes: Usborne activity books. Have you ever seen them? My mom would give my sister and me one of their books at the beginning of every flight we took, and I remember how smart and gripping they were. The spy one was my favorite, and my sister still has it on her bookshelf. This activity book and the sticker book are great, too. Just a tip for those of you dreading flights!

How do you entertain little ones on a plane? Any other suggestions?
