Bring the Flight to Life

Spark your child’s interest in how things work by teaching him about flight. From the airport windows, watch planes take off while you wait to board. Fold a few paper airplanes and talk about the fascinating physics of flight. When you get on the plane, plug some headphones in and listen to the air traffic controllers clear the pilot for takeoff. Your kid will be so enthralled with what’s going on that he’ll forget to make a fuss or kick the chair in front of him!
