#13 In Your Bag
Is anyone wondering how we plan to entertain a toddler for 10 hours on an airplane? We have a bag full! Trust me, I've put a lot of thought into it. I've been putting books and toys back since we found out in November that we would be going to Hawaii. I've also found some ideas on other blogs and websites. I finished loading Brennan's carry on bag last night after he went to bed, so everything we pull out will be a surprise. Many of the items he has never seen, and then some are his favorites that I'm sure he'll look for over the next few days. Mike got a really nice backpack somewhere, and all of it's pockets and padded straps make it perfect for this task.
It looks like a jumbled mess here, but that's an example of all I have.
He also has: seek and find books, trucks and cars in a bag, a wood board puzzle, a blank notebook and stickers, a Color Wonder set, a small magna doodle, a blanket and stuffed animal, and various snacks.
Our first flight is a two hour early morning trip. Then we have a layover, and then fly 8 hours to Hawaii. I hope some napping occurs during that time, and the layover will give us a chance to get some energy out. I think we will be ok. Any other suggestions?
