Thanks for the tips! I am still nursing my daughter (21 m) so that will help with the ear popping. We have been weaning, but I am sure that she will enjoy a couple of extra nursings during the trip!
My son is almost three. He likes electronic type things, I will look at those today, but if it is too hard for him to do on his own I just get frustrated!
The kiddos have never had lollipops, but I am sure that they would enjoy them. That is a great idea! Thanks. I haven't worried as much about my daughter's ears popping b/c of the nursing and she takes a pacifier, but since my son doesn't do either I need all the help I can get! I hate to give them candy, but for sanity's sake I will make an exception here! 8O
