Surprise bag for a 2 year old – travelling by plane

Travelling by plane with a 2 year old 1 - The Yellow SideSince The Older One was born, we have been in almost 30 flights with him.

Travelling with small babies is easy. They feed, and sleep, and are happy to be in your arms. As they grow, it gets more complicated, they sleep less and want more action.

In our case, we had to start taking stuff to entertain The Older One on the plane when he was around 11/12 months old.

Today I am sharing the pack I made the last time we travelled by plane, and I would say it is great for a 2 and a half to a 3 and a half year old.

I think the key is to have a lot of different things, all packed in individual bags, all small and light and at least some of them only used in certain occasions, to keep the “novelty factor”.

1. Some kind of puzzle
This time we took some of our large Plus Plus pieces.

I love this bambino Lük system. Do you know it? I never knew it growing up in Portugal. Travelling by plane with a 2 year old 3 - The Yellow Side

Best is all fits in a small drawstring bag which we kept under the front seat. Neat right?

We also take quite a lot of snacks… I will make another post on that 😉Travelling by plane with a 2 year old 12 - The Yellow Side

Do you travel with your toddler by plane? Do you take anything to entertain them? Would love to hear about it on the comments!
