A MUM has revealed the clever way she keeps her toddlers entertained during flights, using a simple Amazon purchase.
The parent showed how a portable document folder enabled her to stop her young kids getting bored while travelling.
In a video on TikTok, the mother, who posts as thetravelhack, is seen flipping through the pages of the folder, all of which are packed with books, toys and activities.
Her child is also seen flicking through the folder and smiling, with so many options available to play with during the journey.
The mum explained how she uses the folder in the video’s caption.
She wrote: “If you want to keep a toddler entertained during a flight, get yourself a ‘layered portable document box’.
“Alba could get to everything without digging around in a backpack and nothing got lost or rolled away.
“It has 3 layers so you can flip between all the activities and keep it all organised.
“I think toddlers are the hardest age to fly with and I was panicking about extra delays during our recent flight with Alba (aged 2 and doesn’t sit still!)
“This layered folder was a winner and I’ll be using it for any situation where she might get bored in a small space!
“I also made one for Joseph (aged 5) using an old laptop case that has lots of sleeves and compartments and it also worked brilliantly.”
The hack was well received by others online by others, one of whom simply wrote: “Nice tip.”
Another said: “Genius! Gonna make these for the kids! Thank you!”
The mother wasn’t the only one to reveal how to entertain your kids using simple items available on Amazon
Everyone knows a kid is happiest when they’re eating snacks, making the game an instant winner.
The rules are very simple – kids have to find two snacks the same beneath the flip lids.
When they find two alike, they get to eat them as a reward.
A flight attendant has revealed what you should do when a child is kicking your seat.
Here is why you should NEVER board the plane first when you have young kids.
