Whether it is plane, car ride, train or bus, you can agree that traveling with kids can be mind numbing and a bit stressful, right? Especially if you are getting evil sideways glares from passengers.

Well, have no fear these 7 techniques will help you get through long journeys with minimal brain damage.

Check in online to save time

Checking in online will save you the hustle of waiting in long lines with your children. The long wait can make them become restless. When you check in online you can just hand over your check in luggage and proceed to the security line

Leave plenty of time to spare

Aways plan your trips with extra time to spare. It wouldnt do you any good to get to the airport and start running around like a headless chicken with screaming kids in tow. Get to the airport early enough so that you can get all of the necessary formal stuff out of the way so that you can have a few minutes to settle the children.

Have a plane bag for each child

A plane bag can be as simple and inexpensive as you want it to be. A plane bag essentially houses all of  your children’s play things;from colouring books, crayons, toys and sweets, ofcourse.

These are essentials that you can use to distract your children during the flight. Don’t let them see in it though. Just imagine the look on their little faces when you hand them their bags. It will save you for a good fifteen minutes.

Another good idea is to pre download movies on your tablet that you can show them when they start getting restless again. Cartoons and animations are a good bet.

Have a backpack as your hand luggage

This is another big one. Strapped to your back a backpack frees up your hands to carry or hold the hand of your children. It also comes in handy when you have to show your travel documents.

Bathroom stops

Children are very funny creatures and will assure you that they do not need to use the bathroom only to later turn on their word mid take off. Be sure to have your children use the bathroom before you board your flight.

It is also a good idea to restrict the not fluids that they take or you will be making trips to the bathroom all through your flight.

Comfy clothes

This goes without saying, you should dress your children in clothes that they will be comfortable wearing on a long journey. This will minimise their discomfort and moodiness. Pyjamas are a great option for your kids. They are soft and have a loose fitting to.

Also make sure that the clothes are easy to pull off incase you need to change them.

Carry a pillow and blanket

Children above the age of two are allowed to get their own seats. This is great because you get to have your space. For a moment, that is. When the little ones get drowsy they will need a soft comfortable place to rest their weary heads. This is where a pillow and blanket come in handy. The children will be able to lean against the window or seat and drift off to wonderland.
