I recently had the chance to review the TRAYblecloth Airplane Tray Activity Cover. This is a must when traveling with small kids! The cover slips on easily over the tray, covering it completely. Keep in mind, this is intended for regular trays and will not work on the ones that pull out of the armrest like in bulkhead/first class. Milana chose the owl one, which was super cute and really well made. When it arrived, a set of dry erase markers were included. Since we already had the Crayola washable ones, we just brought those instead.
Each cover comes with a see through window pocket, where you can slip activity pages underneath then use dry erase markers on top and simply wipe off. The company has activity sheets available to download on their site, or you can simply make your own (tic tac toe, etc). You can also get creative and draw a little roadway on a piece of paper, then slip it underneath the plastic and your child can play with cars using this. Milana didn’t want to color on the plastic, and just placed her paper on top. There are small pockets on the front of this cover, where kids can put their crayons/markers/snacks/etc. so they won’t fall to the floor.
Another thing we used the clear plastic for is those window clings kids seem to be obsessed with. You can find these in the dollar bin at Target, they seem to change with the seasons. I never brought these on a plane because personally I’m not a fan of putting this sticky stuff onto the airline’s property (windows, trays, etc.) so this is the solution to that! They stick perfectly to the tray cover and if there is any sticky residue, it’s your property and not the airline’s.
When your tray table has to be in the upright, locked position for takeoff/landing, you can leave the cover on and its contents in the pockets. The design allows for the tray table to be locked and for the contents to stay securely in the pockets. There is also a pocket on the back side, where you can slip books/coloring books/etc. that will stay securely stowed until you remove them.
Have you tried one of these covers yet? There are many different designs to choose from, so there’s bound to be one your child loves.
