During a recent chat with a childhood friend our conversation turned to the topic of flying with children. She is a mom of four and a veteran flyer. As we chatted about my family’s upcoming trip and my hope that things would go smoothly traveling with the twins and baby girl, she offered me an activity suggestion. She said she learned this trick from a flight attendant and has used it over and over again.
So, I tried it out.
She said all I needed was a bag of pretzels and a straw.
Then I helped Sparkles load a few pretzels on the straw.
She ate a few.
She piled a few more on.
And she was entertained for a solid 30 minutes.
Thanks for the advice Jen!
