How do you deal with long plane rides?

Next weekend my 4 year old twin boys, my 6 year old son and myself are flying from Alaska to Indiana with 2 stops in between. I got a later flight hoping they would sleep, but let's be realistic that probably won't happen. What do you do to entertain your kids on long flights? Can I take snacks on the plane?

Sadly the only thing they will let you take is formula as far as I know. You can take snacks but you will have to buy food after you go through security at one of the food vendors inside the terminal.

For entertainment... Books, coloring books, portable dvd players, kindles or nooks, cheap silly toys from a dollar store (rofl, just not load ones so the whole plane doesn't want to string you up by the time you land), mp3 players with ear buds to give them music and maybe look up silly games for car rides. I'm sure there are some you can play on a plane too.
