Paco's favorite summers are filled with fun, friends, and family! He is very grateful for this summer because it has been full of all those things. One of Paco's creative ways to preserve his favorite memories is by creating a Memory Board. There are so many ways you can create a memory board it is a perfect activity for anyone. Paco is just getting started on his, he can't wait to share it with you.
Gather photos, write stories, draw pictures, remember quotations, describe places... on a memory board you can create just about anything you'd like. One way to make your memory board really special is by using proper penmanship! Paco knows how important it is to have clear handwriting. He gets a lot of practice writing his weekly postcards to you. You can now get in some good penmanship practice too. Just use Paco's Handwriting Practice worksheets as a guide to practice each letter. Or you can print out the activities and then trace each letter and number. You know how the saying goes: 'Practice makes perfect.'
Paco would love to see your handwriting progress in a postcard! Don't forget he loves to get mail too.

Paco finished a cool jigsaw puzzle this week! Did you take a guess at what his puzzle was? There was a hint written in his postcard, and a clue in the picture! It was WATER. It was a hard puzzle to put together but it was a great challenge and fun for Paco to complete. If you could do any jigsaw puzzle you wanted, what would it be?
Well, now you can make that happen with Paco's Create Your Own Jigsaw Puzzle activity! Just print the sheet below and follow the instructions to make your very own custom puzzle. And don't miss Paco's Vocab Video, look at how smoothly he glides through the water.
Paco had great fun trying out a little archery this week! One of the biggest lessons he learned was that hitting the bullseye is no easy task. It is much harder than it looks. Paco didn't hit the bullseye at the range this time, but he did hit one in in the activity below!
Can you find the arrow that hit the bulls? Don't get dizzy!
Paco has been having a lot of fun swimming this summer! Pools, ponds, lakes, oceans...there are so many ways to cool off during the hot days of summer. Do you have a favorite swimming spot? Paco likes a good day at the pool or the beach. But no matter which watering hole he chooses, he always wears his sandals! A good pair of flip flops goes hand in hand with sunny summer days. Help Paco find the lost sandal in his new Lost Sandal activity. Just pick the sandal below that does not have a match.
Parades can be so much fun to watch! Some parades are really big and last for miles. Others are small and last only a few blocks. But the one thing all parades have in common is celebrating! Paco had a great time at his small community parade this week. Parades are good ways to show your support for events, holidays, or people! Have you ever been to a parade? Maybe you have even been IN a parade. Paco would love to hear about it.
Next time you watch a parade in person, participate in a parade, or even if you watch one on TV, add an extra level of fun with Paco's Parade Celebration Scavenger Hunt. Happy Hunting.
