    Role playing is such a great tip! As a frequent traveler even though I know the drill, it never occurred to me to give the kiddos a heads up! Figured I’d just bark the instructions as we go…which worked…but probably wasn’t a pleasant experience for the kids!

      Ha! Ha! Love the description of ‘barking the instructions’. We’ve all done it! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment!

    This is such a fun way to teach children about security! Very practical, well thought out and presented. I never thought they could be taught like this.

    Great suggestions. I love the detail you have gone into in creating a role play for every aspect of security check. It’s the waiting that I think is the most difficult for kids, so another great idea was to get TSA precheck.

    • NatalieTanner says:

      We LOVE TSA PreCheck – worth every single penny and the long process to get. Still, little ones can really be calmed when they know what to expect. I appreciate your comment. 🙂

  4. What an interesting post. I really like the idea of the role playing to get your kids used to going through security. I fear flying with kids is going to get more difficult as the insane ban on most electronics (from some airports) comes into force.

      You know, we are affected by this ban! I bought tickets on Turkish Airlines to go to Athens. WE love Turkish Airlines and did that on purpose but I have to admit I was not happy when I realized there would be no electronics on board!! It really is only for one leg…the one back from Istanbul coming home and there are worse things. I have lots of tips here for non electronic activities for kids and they’ll sure come in handy now! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Wow you have gone into quite a bit of detail with the role playing here. Its not something we would have thought to have done with out kids but like i say what ever works is a good thing. I do like your examples though looks like it could have been a fun activity with the kids

    • NatalieTanner says:

      It can be lots of fun and a real learning experience for first timers. If your kiddos have been flying since they were itty bitty like mine – and probably yours! it isn’t necessary but if the kiddo is preschoolish and it will be the first time…role playing can be a real lifesaver!! Thanks for stopping by!
