I have searched high and low for some great Columbus Day ideas! With Columbus Day one week away, this should give you time to get everything ready!
First we have Jonah Lisa Dyer with some great cork boats that they set sail. I know for a fact that if you call a store that does wine tasting or even a restaurant that serves wine, they will often time just give you corks. Ask nicely and be sure to thank them!
Next is Hallee the Homemaker with a great New World map to make with the kids. You can discuss the length of the journey and relate it to the kids. How do they feel when they have to go someplace new? When they do not know anyone? How do you think the explorers felt?
I love paper mache and this globe from The Crafty Classroom is perfect.
Every holiday needs a snack or two!
Milk Allergy Mom has an easy apple boat.
While Super Mom Moments made her snacks for a "Tangled" party, they could work just as easily for Columbus Day.
