We didn't do much to celebrate Columbus Day. I gave them a coloring page to work on as they came in this morning. Then we looked through some past Weekly Reader's I had about Christopher Columbus and did the activities that went along with them. Pretty simple. Due to lack of time (a constant issue this year) we didn't do a fun craft or activity, but I thought I would include a picture of one I've done in the past.
Maybe next year! At least the children learned who he was and why we celebrate him. :)
