The end of this week will bring one of the biggest games of the year, The Super Bowl! This year turns out to be extra special because Paco's favorite team is playing in the big game. It has been a very long time since they have been in a game like this. In fact, it has not happened before in Paco's lifetime. It is very special to make it this far. It will be exciting.
To help you participate in the big game Paco has created Super Bowl Bingo! Just print out the activity sheet and see if you can get Bingo first. Have fun!

Paco had a great week ringing in 2020! He loves the New Year holiday. Watching fireworks high up in the sky is such a fun way to celebrate. Have you ever seen a big firework display? The New Year is also a great time to think back on the past year and to plan for what the new year may bring.
One of Paco’s favorite, fun, and easy activities to commemorate the year is to complete this Year in Review Worksheet. Just download the activity sheet below and fill in all the blanks about YOU from the last year.
Another fun activity to start the New Year (and end an old one) is to create a Time Capsule! Have you ever made a time capsule? You just have to gather some items and tuck them away to open another time. Paco suggests waiting at least one year before opening, but you can wait even longer if you want! Create your own time capsule to see what will change for you. Just print out Paco’s Time Capsule Checklist below to help you get started.
Paco is grateful to have so many wonderful pals to share all his adventures with. The last few weeks of the year celebrating special holidays, birthdays, and the New Year has been fabulous.

Paco and everyone at Postcard Pal hopes that 2020 is full of learning, fun, and adventure for all of you.
To kick off the New Year Paco has created a super fun Read and Find for all his favorite pals! Just download the Winter Holiday Edition below to see how many awesome holiday trinkets you can find.
