For this installment of In Flight Fun for the Kids, I decided to add in something a little more on the practical side. As you know, liquids cannot be carried through security at the airport, and if you want water, you have to purchase it at the gate. On the last trip, my children were too big for sippy cups, but yet, not quite old enough to handle a bottle of water (forget the sports caps - not sure how many times one of them squirted themselves or each other with it) or the cups of water given out on the flight. For our fall trip, I have purchased each of the kids new Disney water bottles. I figure this way, I can purchase bottles of water at the gate and fill their water bottles for the flight and not worry about spills. Plus, after one very turbulent flight, I have learned that if I don't bring water, and there is no drink service on the flight for safety reasons, everyone will be very thirsty, and the last thing I need on a long flight is three thirsty kids, particularly if it is the flight home! The ones pictured here I purchased last year at the Disney Store Warehouse sale for just over $2 each. Of course, you don't have to purchase Disney ones, but these happen to be our favorite. Even better, we now have water bottles to bring into the parks.
