    Make a mission. Maybe your mission is to save the air dragons from the villain or maybe deliver a top secret file to the president. If you get bored at your destination, you could extend this (eg. save the water dragons from the bottom of the pool etc.) or make a new one.

    People watch. Okay, this may sound really creepy, but it isn't. Look at someone (eg. a woman in a business outfit walking briskly or a small child picking up rubbish) and make a whole life story for them. Maybe that lady's name is Shirley and she is also delivering a secret file to the president? Or the queen? Or a bad guy? Maybe she is actually a man in disguise? Or an alien? What does the file say? What planet is she from? Be creative!

    Ask your travel partners if they have any Tic Tacs/coins and make up some games. Maybe you can play tiddlywinks with coins or a business game with the Tic Tacs. Again, be creative.

    Make an imaginary pet. Imagine it flying outside the window beside you. It becomes curious and goes through the wall and onto your lap. Name it, play with it. Feed it and wash it. Dance with it give it doctor check ups. You can extend this into your mission (e.g. have it as your partner.).

    Okay, don't do this if you get scared easily. In fact, don't even read this. Okay, imagine the plane is crashing. What would the REALLY ANNOYING kid behind you who is crying do? What would you do? What role would you play on the island? Collector? Leader? Would you live that long? Would you help anyone?

    Creep out your fellow passengers. Say oranges at random times or develop a weird twitch. Sing a cheerleading remix (complete with sound effects and accents). Sing a popular song in a different accent (my sister likes doing Indian and Scottish) and dance!

    Chat, sleep, eat or wait patiently. Boring, I know, but if you followed these tips you won't have long to wait until you get new ideas!

Warnings

  • Don't yell out "FIRE!" or something like that. It isn't funny. Haven't you read the boy who cried wolf?
