The best part about the airport is the excitement of going somewhere new... or the excitement of returning home. But in the meantime, there's a lot of long, soul-draining waiting time- meaning this list of fun airport scavenger hunt ideas to keep you entertained is sure to come in handy. 

The airport often means severe amounts of downtime, so why not turn that downtime into time spent playing a fun airport scavenger hunt game? Keep your eyes peeled for people struggling with suitcases, getting quick massages in one of those massage chairs, or going crazy at Duty Free.

A scavenger hunt at the airport is as easy as crossing off the things on our list: people kissing, hugging, eating Toblerone (seriously, people only eat Toblerone when they are in airports). Is there something you always see when you're stuck at a terminal that isn't already on this list? Then add it!
