These videos and articles focus on things that fuel my energy- global experiences, loved ones, and life learnings.
Here is Part 2 of the #airplanegame as told by my daughters. And it worked this weekend- we had such a smooth flight and naps!
Question- How can kids sit still on a plane? How can I get them to want to sleep?
Lakshmi’s Learning- As previously mentioned, preparation can play an integral role for a smooth flight. Here are my girls sitting on the “pretend airplane” at home.
Shyla repeats the rules from the captain (no screaming, no crying, no jumping, no kicking, and no whining— these are essential). Then my younger daughter Shriya says the critical line- “It’s time to sleep”!!! Guess she listens well to all the times I have said it. When playing the game at home- integrate pretend sleep and it can translate to sleep on the plane. Remember- kids learn routines just like nap time. Stay tuned for more from my girls where we will talk about airplane entertainment!
