I spent the morning buying little toys and trinkets that will (hopefully) occupy Claire's attention for 10 hours on an airplane. My plan is to put them in a bag and let her reach in without looking to choose one every once in a while. This strategy worked perfectly when we were driving from Wisconsin to Maine, so I'm pretty sure it will work again. I also took away her L-Max for the past week or so in order for it to be 'new' again on the plane, and I always have crayons and a notebook when I fly with her. Any other great ideas for activities? How about food? I never know what to pack for food, and for shorter trips I rarely take anything along. But with such a long flight, I have to take something or else we'll be overpaying for food on the plane. Does anyone have a favorite food they like to fly with? I'm looking for ideas.
