Well…. We made it to Newfoundland! I had been working at some different activities to keep Nova busy for the plane rides there and back.
This binder is full of math, puzzles, colouring paging, the alphabet, bingo dotter mysteries, mazes, colour by number, spot the differences and tons of other fun stuff!
Nova would see me working on the binder and ask to try some of the pages. It’s great because she’s learning and she loves doing it!
Nova picked the search and find farm book when we were at Walmart. It’s really neat because the front page has stickers that have to be added into different pages of the book before you start colouring. It’s a good book for learning and paying attention to numbers and then she gets to colour the page afterwards.
Next I made a busy bag with building blocks. You will need small wood blocks (I got mine from the dollar store) and Velcro pieces. I found mine at Walmart in the craft section.
Novas backpack also has the following – bingo dotters, magnetic hangman, mini chalkboard with eraser & chalk, clay, mini tic tac toe and flash cards (subtraction, addition and go fish).
Bingo dotters are 100ml each so no issues with bringing them on the plane ✈️

Nova did some of her activity book on our third, and last, flight to get to Newfoundland. She loves the ones where she gets to use bingo dotters! Luckily Nova sleeps a lot on the plane so there was no need for constant entertaining!
Having this backpack of stuff was also very helpful when we were out visiting with family to keep Nova busy! If she got bored she would just grab something from her bag! Nowadays we have iPads and cell phones to entertain our kids, but I like to have some other options available to avoid the constant screen time.
