    MY Fh and I are travelling with about 10 kids under 10 to the Mayan Riviera in January. Two of them are ours and the rest are friends children or nephews etc. Does anyone have any good ideas on things we can do on the plane to make the time pass a little quicker. Kids games etc for a plane..picture search ?

      well if there is tv your safe if not you can bring colouring books, there is travel board games you can pick up like monopoly,scrabble, battleship. i saw them online at toysrus. there was also someone on here that had found this online booklet with all sorts of stuff for kids to do. checkout the dollar store for activity books.
      good luck.

        Movies. Bring a laptop and put on their Movies. Coloring Books. Card games. All of this will depend on the age of the kids.

          Most kids these days have their own little electronic games like nintendo ds or psp. The older kids like the ipods. Just make sure there is lots of gum for them to chew on so their little ears don't hurt so much.

            DVDs on laptops, PSP, DSi, coloring books, etc. Or you can plan a very early flight and hope that they'll be sleepy and sleep for most of the flight.

              A strategy that works well with our daughter is definitely what the above have said, and then we always buy a new toy or new DVD or new something that we can pull out when she is absolutely DONE and having a fit. This usually works like a charm and buys us some peace. She is only 2 though so it may not be as effective with older kids :-)

                I created DIY coloring books for my little guest. I have the sample on 'My Blog'

                  portable dvd players (I have a triple headphone jack that can plug into it or an ipod so more than one can listen). Ipods, nintendos and other electronic activities are good. Things I also always have for my kids (we do about 8 or so international flights a year):

                  snacks: Goldfish, gummy snacks, fun size packs of m&ms (when they were little, they knew they got those when they were sitting still in the seat with a seatbelt on waiting for take off) I'll also make cookies and biscotti and pack in an extra ziploc. The amount of times we have been delayed or food has not been available makes me very religious about snacks.

                  Ziploc bags: freezer gallon size. I pack a change of clothes for the kids in one (sometimes just a shirt, but if they are in the 2-5 year range always an extra pair or two of underwear and pants in case of accidents). Kids get airsick, spill things, have accidents, I put the dirty clothes in the ziploc, put the clean clothes on. I have also passed out about 6-7 ziploc bags to mom's dealing with spills/sick etc who don't want to throw the offending clothes in their travel bags. I love ziploc bags!

                  Travel size baby wipes...good for all stickiness, mess, markers, etc my kids are 6 & 9 and baby wipes still make the bag

                  cloth diaper or a flour sack dishcloth (or a small handtowel), once again you just never know when a mess can occur, and it's a small item but when needed can become very handy!

                    For our wedding we had two toddlers. We packed them each a back pack with new toys. Little dolls, coloring books, and snacks. BUT, we also packed a little something in the suitcase, so that on the way home they would have new toys again. For some reason kids get bored with toys they know. But if it's a new toy it'll take longer for them to get sick of it! :)
