How to Take Kids on a Long Flight (VIDEO)

This weekend my kids took the longest plane flight that they have ever been on, and I’m not going to lie, I was nervous. Seriously, I was panicking that our 4 hour flight followed immediately with a 7 hour flight to Hawaii was going to get ugly with my 4 1/2, 7 and 9 year olds. But with the Disney Aulani resort welcoming us in Hawaii, I knew I had to make those flights work!

For the week prior to our trip, I did a lot of planning. I made lists of things I wanted to take, things they they liked to do and ideas of snacks that would travel well. I figured that everything had to be planned out for our flights to Honolulu for this to go smoothly.

I’m happy to say that despite my fear, the flight to Hawaii went surprisingly well. It wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought and the kids did great! Today’s Baby Gizmo video is all about what we brought on the flights and tips that helped us survive a really long flight with kids.
