If you’ve ever missed a flight or had a long delay, you know what it’s like to be stuck in an airport for hours without a thing to do. It isn’t fun, and if you’re traveling with kids, it really isn’t fun. Keeping yourselves entertained without spending your holiday cash in expensive airport stores will be a challenge, but you won’t be the first to face it.
Check out these videos made by people around the world making the best of their extra hours in an airport, for some inspiration.
All by myself
There is never a bad time to lipsync to Celine Dion classics, but nighttime in a quiet airport is an especially good time.
Do them all, one by one. This will be especially fun with kids.
Crash some calls
This is silly, annoying, and slightly obnoxious – but if it’s your kind of fun, why not?
Dancing with yourself
Zooey Deschanel and the team at Hello Giggles think you should dance like no one’s watching, even if they are.
You too can plan this to welcome friends or family home, record and upload if you happen to catch someone else’s, or randomly join in when you see one happening. Whatever you choose to do, flashmobs are still loads of fun.
