This year, participants are in search of 20 hiding penguins across the neighborhood. You will need to print out a “penguin find-it” sheet on the Westfield Shopping Center’s Facebook page to keep track of which penguins you come across. And if your children love to color, their Facebook page also includes holiday-themed activity sheets and coloring pages.
