Paco had great time learning about marine life this week! It was his first visit to such a big indoor aquarium and he loved every square inch of it. There were a lot of fish. Some colorful and big, some small and almost translucent. Paco learned a lot about the different areas where ocean animals live and what they eat. Have you ever been to an aquarium? It’s almost like you’re in the water with the fish. When Paco saw the shark he was happy to have the glass between them, that's for sure. Sharks are so cool, but always keep your distance and respect their space!
You know what Paco likes to sing when he sees or hears about sharks?
I bet you can guess… just click below to sing along with Pink Fong!
Now with a little help from your math skills and a few crayons or colored pencils, you can create a tiny little aquarium full of color for yourself. Be sure to check your math before you start to color. Enjoy!
Building is so much fun! Whenever Paco builds something, whether it's big or small, he fancies himself an engineer. And it's true. Engineers do build things. They build lots of things to solve all kinds of problems. Engineers study and work hard to understand how things work so that they can help make improvements and create new things!
You know who else calls themself an engineer? ELMO! Yep, Elmo the engineer, from Sesame Street. Elmo has a great new idea for a contraption that will... serve pasta?!?! Just click the image below to see what he's up to.
Do you ever call yourself an engineer? You've probably had lots of great ideas for things to build. Paco built a classic birdhouse this week and he also helped his friend Rosco fix a hole in his dog house. He's had a very productive week as an engineer!
The only problem is that Bud hung Paco's birdhouse in a tree and they can't seem to find it! Help the pals through the maze to find Paco's colorful new creation. Just download the worksheet to get started.
Bowling is a great family sport! From the littlest toddlers to the older and wisest, it's a fun game for everyone. Even for those that don't like to bowl, keeping score is a great math challenge. Most bowling alley's have other games too. Like pinball and other arcade favorites. Paco enjoys bowling whenever he can get to his favorite bowling alley. Guess what it's called... PIN PALS! What a great name, don't you think?
If you want to practice bowling even if you can't get to the bowling alley, checkout Paco's Backyard Bowling activity sheet for simple instructions on how to bowl at home!

Paco had a great week collecting items for his annual neighborhood Donation Drive! Many things cleaned out of one family’s house can be donated and reused in another. Paco knows how hard it can be to part with items you really like. A long time ago his mom taught him a little trick to help him let go of things he doesn't use anymore while preserving the memory. Just write down why you love it and take a picture for a scrapbook!
Check out the picture below to see how one of Paco's Pals cleaned out, donated, and preserved her great memories! "Nice work Maddie," Paco told her. "Think of all the joy that headband will bring to a new owner!"
