Where's Waldo in the ATH?

Find Waldo Local 2020
Event date: 
Wednesday, July 1, 2020 - 11:00am to Friday, July 31, 2020 - 4:00pm
Looking for a free, family-friendly activity this summer that will also support Avid Bookshop, your local independent bookstore? Then #FindWaldoLocal!

For the ninth year in a row, Avid Bookshop is hosting Where's Waldo in the ATH? This year's search, running from July 1st to July 31st, will be a little different due to social distancing needed due to the Covid-19 global pandemic.

Below you'll find activity sheets, coloring sheets, and fun Waldo facts you can download and print out at home (or request to pick up from our contactless pick-up shelves outside of the shop!).

Color and cut out the Waldo image and let the fun begin! Pose Waldo around your home or neighborhood, then share photos on social media, tagging @AvidBookshop, @CandlewickPress. Be sure to use the hashtags #FindWaldoLocal and #WheresWaldo.

Stay tuned to Avid Bookshop's social media, as we'll be hiding some Waldo buttons and stickers in strategic locations around Athens for you to discover (while wearing masks and social distancing).
Be creative! Some ideas for things you can do include:
* Put together a Waldo tableau, with Waldo books and your cut-out Waldo that you've colored.

* Re-create a scene from one of the Where’s Waldo books (following social distancing guidelines, of course).

* Draw a Where’s Waldo? scene featuring Waldo and Avid Bookshop.

* Photograph Waldo doing everyday activities, such as cleaning your room, coloring, or--of course--reading a book!
Please note: Waldo cannot speak, so please no speech bubbles, and keep all Waldo activities suitable for children. Please also avoid any photographs where Waldo appears to be endorsing a brand or product.
