<![CDATA[Shine on!]]>Thu, 29 Apr 2021 07:00:00 GMThttp://yourpostcardpal.com/pacos-blog/shine-onThere are so many amazing things to find by the sea. Boats, birds, shells, and ships, just to name a few! Another very special sight you might see by the sea is a lighthouse. Paco saw an incredible lighthouse this week. Have you ever seen one? At night, when the sky is dark, a bright light from a lighthouse can be seen for miles.

For a little seaside fun of your own, check out Paco's latest Read and Find: Nautical Edition.  How many lighthouses do you see?

<![CDATA[GOAL!!!]]>Thu, 08 Apr 2021 07:00:00 GMThttp://yourpostcardpal.com/pacos-blog/goalNo matter what you call it: soccer or football; goal is one word used in this sport that is universal for score! Paco has been practicing scoring lately. He loves to kick the ball into the net for a goal. Have you ever made a goal in soccer? The goal keeper, or goalie, is the person who tries to stop balls from going into the net and prevent a score. The goalie is the only person on a team who can use their hands but Paco still thinks it is one of the hardest positions to play. What position do you play or would you play in soccer? 

Paco's latest activity is a fun twist on the job of a goalie! See if you can spot all ten  differences in the pictures below. There are no balls in the net so this green bird is doing a great job defending. Have fun!

<![CDATA[trucks!]]>Thu, 04 Mar 2021 08:00:00 GMThttp://yourpostcardpal.com/pacos-blog/trucksDid you know a Big Rig is a large truck with 18 wheels? This week Paco rode in a Big Rig with his friend Sergio. Did you see his postcard? Sergio helped Paco count all 18 wheels on his truck. With four, six, or up to 18 wheels, trucks are great machines that help to move things where they need to go! Next time you see a Big Rig or any type of delivery truck, give the driver a wave and say thanks. From big trucks to small trucks, and postal trucks to hot dog trucks; all trucks help make the world go round!

​Check out Paco's LET'S MAKE TRUCKS activity to make your own set of paper trucks. Have fun!
