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.
One of the most amazing things about summer is all the fresh fruits and vegetables that ripen from the warm sun! Paco especially loves tomatoes. This week he had a great time visiting a greenhouse garden that had perfectly ripe tomatoes. Such a great summer treat. What is your favorite summer vegetable? There are plenty to choose from.
Check out Paco's Count and Color Activity Sheet to count how many of each type of veggie you see! How many of the different vegetables can you name? Count then color. What colors will you use?
Trains are pretty amazing machines don't you think? Paco had a great time at the train park this week. He saw lots of different trains but his favorite was the Old Steam Train. "CHOO CHOO". Do you have a train park where you live?
You don't have to have a train park to do Paco's latest activity, you just have to know your math! Download his Choo Choo Math worksheet and see how many cars you can complete. Good luck.
Paco is at it again: out and about exploring nature! This time it was in Zion National Park. National Parks and State Parks are great places to explore. Have you ever visited any near your home? Even if you don't have National or State Parks near you, any park, like city parks and neighborhood parks, are great places to explore.
Paco is sharing his Nature Trail Scavenger Hunt this week. Just print the activity sheet below and then head outside! Find a nice trail or path to explore and get hunting. How many of these fun items do you think you can find?
Paco was feeling pretty silly this week! Did you get his postcard? He showed off his latest trick, a handstand (or maybe it's a wing stand?). If you've never done a handstand you can get some good practice starting with your head, doing a head-stand! Trying a headstand up against a wall will help you with your balance. Have you ever tried one?
This week Paco made a fun activity that makes you use your head in two ways:
