The following items/ideas are untested. When we get back from our trip, I'll update on their effectiveness - if any is to be reported.
Lucy's Plane Pack
In the pencil holder:
*markers...yes, crayons are safer...maybe I'll switch
*white board marker
*glue stick (if it makes it through security)
*kids scissors (4" blade is approved, we'll see)
In the binder:
Laminated hidden picture (use dry erase-low odor, we hope:)
Activities to go with stories.
Cut and paste printed on sticker paper.
Watercolor pencil sheets:
Also included in folder: extra paper, coloring book pages.
Charlottes Plane Pack
This one was hard (she's only10 months)
*big pom poms
In her folder:
Small Scarf, magazine (to rip up), nesting/stacking/balls all in one
These story cards that have little plastic animals you can touch on each card as you read the story.
To keep them together I hole punched the stack and used a binder ring.
Some small surprises to open along the way.
And of course, lots of snacks. I tried to keep them fairly sugar free as I don't want to add to the "stuck on an airplane for 16+ hours" effect.
Wish us luck!
