I'm a mum and this £1.50 DIY buy is my best travel hack for keeping kids happy on planes | The Sun

A MUM has revealed a cheap travel hack for keeping her toddler entertained on flights.

The parent, whose name is Ayelet, runs a parenting blog, providing hints and tips she has picked up from her years working with children in various different jobs.

In a video on Instagram her child Yitzchak is seen ripping bits of tape off the window of a plane.

She explains that it is blue painter's tape, which can be bought online for as cheap as £1.50.

On Ayelet's blog, she said that she didn't bring any toys for Yitzchak to play with for the holiday, claiming they would not have kept him entertained on the flight.

She said: "We brought zero toys. My reasoning was we are going to be so active while on the trip we wouldn’t have much time to play with them.

"My reasoning for not bringing toys on the flight is I did not think they would entertain him for long enough to make it worth the space."

Ayelet explained that the tape was also useful for keeping the toddler entertained in their accommodation.

She said: "It's easy to pack and provides so much entertainment. We put pieces on the wall and window on the plane and he peeled them off. Repeat.
