This weekend, my wife, son and I all flew to Denver to visit family. Our son is in his toddler stage, which can be a lot to fly with.
He's usually good on planes, but just needs to be busy, and the books and stuffed animals started getting old, and we don't like giving him a phone to keep him busy.
The woman across the aisle leans over and hands me a stack of post-it's and says "Here, use these, they worked wonders on my toddler when he was his age"
So i took the post it notes and stuck them on the seat in front of us. My son went NUTS smiling, laughing, flicking them around, pulling them off, and it didn't even shake the seat to bother the guy in front of us!
From now on I am ALWAYS flying with post its!
