After reading through our airplane and airport books (see post here), I created a scavenger hunt based on what we learned.
Every year, we travel from Michigan to Arizona by plane. Some of the flights have been almost fine and some have been terrible (including my daughter getting sick with no barf bag in sight!!). This year, I am going to do whatever I can to better prepare my kids, especially my three-year old. I don’t think that she remembers getting sick, however, this year she is so much more aware of what is going on around her and curious about EVERYTHING that she sees.
I hit the local library to look for non-fiction books that can help teach my kids the ins and outs of flying on an airplane. I was looking for non-fiction because it is very important to read both fiction and non-fiction text with your kids. It is easier to keep their interest in non-fiction text when they are reading about something that connects to their lives.
