Where's "Maldo"? A Fun Game to Play With a Youth Group

Pin It!

Looking for a fun game to play with a youth group 
or a party? How about "Where's Waldo Maldo"?
We had a blast playing it with our church group.

"Verda" - One of our "Where's Maldo?" characters 

1 -First of all, I recommend you obtain permission
to play the game from the mall 
(or I heard that Walmart will let you play in their stores).
NOTE - We asked the kids not to run in the mall.

2 -We divided the kids into teams &
 instructed them to find six "characters" 
(people they know - in disguise)
milling around amongst the shoppers.
(Our mall asked us not to go in the stores,
so all our characters were in the halls.)

"George" (who's actually my Hunny in disguise!

3. Once they found each of the characters, 
the youth had to find out what they "needed"
& perform an act of service for them.
(For instance, the old lady needed help getting up the stairs &
"George" needed friends - so he wanted them to take his picture & post it on their Facebook!)
If you want, you can have your characters wear 
red & white (like Waldo), but we didn't.

4. The teams received a token as
they completed each task.
(I made mine with a 2" hole punch & card stock.)

5. When all the tokens were
collected, the teams returned to the
starting place. The first team to
finish wins!

We had prizes for the winning team & 
a treat for everyone. 
(I also got a trophy from the thrift store to give out!)

If you play, please let me know how it went.
It's good, clean fun!
