Plane trips with toddlers can be a disaster. So you are going to want to be prepared. No matter how long your plane trip, you need to divide it into five or 10 minute increments. And you are going to have a little trinket for all of that time. What I did when I traveled with my son is I carried my entire carry on full of these little things that I found at convenience stores. One of his favorites was a tiny little keyboard and he just played with that. Another good idea is to wrap them all in different colored tissue paper because the power of this process is in the novelty of the items and in having it be a really fun experience for your child.
