My Bohol Itinerary with Kids 
(5 days and 4 nights)

Day 0
-- pack (see my Bohol packing list)
-- if kids experience travel sickness in airplanes, drink Bonamine the night before so the kids don't become drowsy during the flight. Bonamine is effective for 24 hours after drinking it.

My Tip:  After picking you up from the airport, you can request the driver to pass by a grocery in Tagbilaran City, so you can buy bottled water, breakfast items, and bread to feed the fish during snorkeling. It's more expensive to buy those items at Panglao Beach.
