Then once you get that done you have to worry about getting to the airport on time and checking all of you luggage in.

Whether it be an I spy game or the Alphabet game where you try to find something on the airplane that starts with A and then goes all the way through the alphabet to Z. These are fun games that you don’t have to pack anything separate to take with you. As long as you are enthusiastic with what you are playing with the kids. They usually get excited and will be able to get through the flight without any tantrums.

The second tip to making a flight fun for kids is to take a hand held gaming machine. This will help keep them entertained for the whole flight. Maybe even buy a new game that you know they have been wanting but don’t give it to them till you have taken off. This will help them not get bored of the game because they have played it before.

The third tip to making a flight fun for kids is to take them a portable dvd player. Then you can buy them a new dvd or take some of their favorites dvd’s that they can watch once the plane is in flight. This will help because some of the movies shown on airplanes are movies kids are not interested in. So if you get them their own portable dvd player they can have their own ear phones and be able to be in a world of their own.

The fourth tip to making a flight fun for kids is if they are into reading. Buy them a new novel to read might be a good idea. This will keep them entertained throughout the whole flight and they will be learning at the same time.
