For Columbus Day in our class we made a scene from the book, My First Biography: Christopher Columbus. I got the idea for this craft from here. The children glued two pieces of blue construction paper to the bottom of the paper to create the "ocean waves" then I painted their hand with brown paint and stamped it onto the paper three times to create the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria. Once the paint dried they glued "sails" onto the ships (I used a white foam sheet) and pulled apart cotton balls to make the clouds. Kids had a lot of fun making this!
