Handprint Boat Crafts for Columbus Day!

Monday, October 8th is Columbus Day and, if you have plans to incorporate special activities and crafts into your lesson plans, be sure to check out these awesome handprint boat crafts we found floating around on Pinterest. While the concept of each project is the same, each turned out just a little different and we know, no matter how you tackle the craftivity, your kiddos will love using their hands to create the Niña, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria as they learn about the famous explorer, Christopher Columbus!
