If you can ask for a seat with extra leg room, that will give them extra space. Prepare as much as you can (snacks, toys, blankets, and anything that bring the kids comfort) but don’t stress because sometimes adults have bad flights too.

When my daughter was younger she got to pack her own backpack with toys, snacks, coloring books, etc. I would also download a movie or two that she hadn't watched yet to her ipad to kept her occupied not only during long flights but during layovers as well. It also helped to have lollipops and pain killers in case the ear pressure became painful. Now that she's a teenager, she likes the in-flight entertainment whenever available, books and we always bring a face mask to make sure our skin stays hydrated during the flight

We love to play pretend flights before we leave! The boys make a box airplane and we watch a movie during the flight.. This is great practice for when we are in the air!
