Airports are quiet, lonely places these days.
Rightly so, given the “stay home” orders we are all following, if we can.
But, like us, airports still want to play.
So, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) has put together a suitcase full of fun activities, videos and even a cut-and-play board game to keep us entertained and engaged.
First up: these cute minute-long video check-ins in with team members form the LAX PUPs (Pets Unstressing Passengers) program.
Next up: LAX at Home – the GAME
If you need a break from video games, try this ‘LAX At Home‘ board game.
The goal of the game is to be the first to travel around the horseshoe layout of LAX, which in normal times can get take a half-hour or more.
You can download and print out the playing board and more than 50 Boarding Pass cards that let you advance – not – around the board.
LAX game creators promise that playing the game you will feel as if you are at LAX: “Experience the excitement of world-class restaurants, catch a performance or check out the celebrity sightings. Just watch out for traffic, paparazzi and leave two hours before your flight.”
LAX also has downloadable coloring pages with airport themes, digital puzzles and a playlist of travel songs to keep you entertained and thinking about how much fun you’ll have when we can all get back out on the road.
