Does anyone have any ideas of a quick easy project for Chrostopher Columbus?

Mailbox has (old issue) has a picture of a boat that you can have them color, cut out, add sail, and put on a blue piece of paper. Then cut a bottle shape around the boat and add "I have a dream..."

cute headband. The kids like this activity - blue paper that will find around a kindergartner's head, Columbus' 3 ships that your kids color and cut out to glue onto the headband. Then a strip of paper they also glue onto the headband that says, "In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue."
Here is a song to the tune of Farmer in the Dell:
In 1492,
in 1492
Columbus sailed across the sea
in 1492.

Since the headband strip says Columbus sailed the ocean blue, I substitute that for the 3rd line in the song.

Handprint ships

I found this somewhere on-line so it is not my original idea. It calls for partners to trace each other's hands on brown paper, then cut or you could use brown paint for handprints. The students add a square white paper for a sail to the top of the middle finger and add a red cross. This is all on blue paper and students draw waves. You could add "In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue" or do three handprint ships and write Nina, Pinta, Santa Maria under each. I plan on doing the painted handprints with the ships' names.

I am doing this tomorrow... I traced a ship from my pattern book and on the flags wrote the names of the ships, CC name, 1492, and new world. The children will color in the ship and color the flags whatever they chose. Then we are going to play bingo. I will call a certain color (random) and if the child has that color flag they will put a marker on it.

This turned out cuter than I thought it would. I had seen the craft kit in oriental trading and decided we could improvise.

I gave my kids a 11 x 14 piece of white construction paper. They used crayons to make the ocean. They could add sharks or suns if they so desired. Next they had to use a triangle shape and trace 3 of them on manila drawing paper and cut them out. On each sail they wrote the name of the ships: Nina Pinta and Santa Maria. We painted there 4 fingers and palm with brown paint and pressed on the ocean. this was the ship. Next they glued their sails at the tip of their fingers. they really did turn out cute and this was incorporating Math (triangles, 3) with Social studies and art using several mediums.

Blue wash

My kids really enjoy this. They color a picture of Columbus' ship or ships- really heavy on the crayon. Then they wash the whole page with thin blue paint or blue watercolor, either works. The paint doesn't get absorbed where the crayon is and the scene is very pretty.
