· For the main luggage have your child write a list of all the items he/she will need for the trip (you can add anything forgotten to the list).
· For carry on, provide your child with a backpack that he/she can look after and work together to fill it with activities to occupy the flight time. Go to a dollar store or craft store for extra surprises.
