Have one of your staff hide somewhere in a local mall. You can give clues if you want or you can just turn them loose to find the person.
Hints: Dress up the staff person in some unrecognizable get-up to make it more difficult. Also, warn the kids to pretend that they are shoppers so that they don't get kicked out of the mall (did I just tell you to lie?)
Variation: You can use multiple staff members to make it even more fun!
