I don’t have kids, but I get antsy. I pack an activity bag (yes, seriously) for car rides, train rides and airplane rides.
There’s only so much time an airplane movie can kill. Here’s my list:
- Notebook and pen
- Book of Sudoku
- iPod: loaded with music, TV shows I want to catch up on and audiobooks (for when carsickness sets in)
- Earplugs: because you never know
- Magazines from home I want to catch up on – I then leave these with flight attendants. Serves two purposes, they get to have new reading and I get to lighten my load.
- Deck of cards
What do you pack to keep you (or the kids) occupied?
