Vlog Of The Week: What To Pack: Kids Carry On | Emily Norris

This week’s Vlog Of The Week is by the lovely Emily Norris. Her video on What To Pack: Kids Carry On is all about her impressive preparation for a 9 hour flight with two children and a baby. In this vlog she inspires us that anything is possible when you put your mind to it – including a long haul flight during the day with 3 little ones!

She has some incredible ideas for activities and distractions, snacks and storage. She really does make it look easy! Emily’s carry on ideas are so inspired we just had to shine a spot light on them and make it our Vlog Of The Week. Any parent will testify that travelling is not easy to do with little ones, so hats off to Emily who clearly knows a thing or two about how preparation is everything when you’re a mum! We’re sure these insider tricks to make flights more enjoyable – for the kids (and the other passengers too!) will come in very handy one day. Suddenly we’re tempted to book a holiday! (Thanks Emily!)
