2. Foam Alphabet Stickers - Add these to your kid's drawing to spell out letters of names, words, etc. Really any stickers would be just fine, but the foam adds an extra element of fun and the educational aspect of the letters is a definite bonus.
3. Melissa & Doug Reusable Sticker Pads - I love these sticker books, because they not only contain stickers but backdrops on which to place them. My favorites are the Habitats sticker book where kids can place animal stickers into different landscapes and the Play House! sticker book, with a variety of interior backgrounds on which your child can add furniture, people, etc.
4. Fisher Price Doodle Pro Travel Doodler with Light - Another fun no-mess surface on which to draw, write, and erase. This one is a great compact size perfect for travel and features a light.
5. Pipe Cleaners - basic and simple, but you can create a ton of fun projects with this no-mess medium. Just to name a few, you could try this shiny alphabet, these fun faces, or these super simple bracelets.
So that's what I've got so far. I still have a few days to prep for the trip, so if you have any suggestions for fun plane-friendly toddler activities I'm all ears!
