Paco went on an amazing horse-drawn sleigh ride with his sister this week! What a beautiful way to spend a day. There has been a lot of snow this winter already and Paco loves it. There are many fun activities to do outdoors in the snow, as long as you can bundle up to stay warm! Building snowman, sledding, and making snow balls -- it's all so much fun. You can have fun indoors making snowflakes too. Paco has made some wonderful paper snowflakes in the past. Have you ever tried?
If you want to give one of Paco's patterns a shot, print out the activity sheet below and follow the instructions to create your own Winter Wonderland!

Paco had a fun time painting this week! He likes to paint and color all kinds of different things. Have you ever painted on a ceramic surface? There are a lot of options for you if you haven't. Using oven safe ceramic dishes is one great idea because you can see your artwork every time you use the dish! Follow the simple instructions on Paco's Ceramic Art activity sheet to make your own plate, bowl, mug, or platter!
Use Paco's Connect the Dots activity to reveal an image that looks a lot like the prehistoric animal that Paco painted this week. Once you've connected all the dots, add some color and make it your own. Isn't art wonderful?
Paco had his game face on this week! He loves to play games with his family and friends. From hopscotch to hide and seek he likes all kinds of games. He especially likes board games. He likes board games SO much that he made his own for you to try!
To get started, print one of the Adventure Game pdf’s below. Paco loves the full color game board but he’s not always by his color printer. Just in case you aren’t either, he made a grayscale version that works the exact same way! Be sure to print all the pages including the instructions, the game cards, and the game board. You’ll need scissors to cut out the game cards and a small object for each player to use on the board. Now grab a couple other players and have some fun.
What does your game face look like? Paco would love to see!
Paco has been having fun with his puppet pal, Sam. Did you get his postcard? Sam is quite a character! Puppets are a great way to use your imagination and have some fun. Have you ever seen a puppet show? They are entertaining events.
If you want to try out your own puppet show, print out Paco's latest activity: Animal Puppets. You can create as many of these cute critter finger puppets as you want. Just give each a personality and put on your own show! What will your puppet show be about?
