We are heading on our very first family (of 3) vacation and that means we have to bring a toddler on an airplane (insert sweating face emoji here). As we prepare for the trip, so many things come to mind and the first thing on my list is Toddler Airplane activities & snacks. So of course, I reached out to my trusty Instagram mom-clan and hundreds of you came through with so many great tips. I’ve compiled all of them here; what’s amazing about these - they come from MANY, regular old moms who have been there, done that!

Less is best

Pull out new toy or snack every 20-30 min or when he’s bored

Don’t board the plane first; wait until last minute to get on
