Airplane Fun Tray

Coming up, Ande and I are venturing off to Utah to have a blast with our family. Curtis will be joining us a week or two later and that means....I am ON MY OWN on the plane with Ande. I have been racking my brain and the internet trying to come up with ways to keep a 1 year old occupied in a small, confined space for 5 hours. To my relief, a blog that I follow posted a fabulous idea just this morning! Serving Pink Lemonade had made an Airplane Tray Cover, and I think it is such an amazing idea and I had to make one.

I tried to include all sorts of busy little activities that I think Ande will like.
These include:
~A zippered pouch in the shape of a basket
~The pouch contains velcro flowers which having matching flowers to attach to
~A twisty thingy (I took from a handy manny book Ande had) which has wheels that you can pull on and off
~A buckle...his favorite!

It is a sleeve that fits perfectly over the airplane tray.

I am hoping that this, along with some other goodies I've been collecting, will ease the wiggles. We shall see....


  1. Cute Cute Cute.....My daughter LOVES buckles like that too! Good luck on the plane :)

  2. I love your profile description. With two gorgeous boys I love adding girly touches to my own 'quiet nap' crafty times too! Thanks for your post - love it!

  3. These trips usually ends up better than you expect. I am a seasoned traveller alone with my kids to and from Norway, but I must admit I am still anxious for my next one.
    Have a safe trip and I am sure your daughter will be very content with her new airplane fun tray.

  4. Thanks for the inspiration!
    Here is the one I made:
