Columbus Day Activities For Kindergarten?

Columbus Day is celebrated in the USA on the second Monday in October. It is a day in which we celebrated Christopher Columbus' trip from Spain to Hispaniola, North America in 1492. He was sent by King Ferdinand II and Queen Isabella of Spain. Columbus' crew sailed on the Niņa, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria. Columbus was looking for a faster route to the far east (Asia) in order to trade for valuable spices. Instead, he found North America, after sailing for five weeks. The ship Santa Maria sank in Hispaniola, but the Niņa and the Pinta both made it back to Spain.

I'm looking for crafts projects for kindergarten children. Any good website with Columbus Day Activities?

Here's a list of some websites with Columbus Day printable crafts, themes, activities, lesson plans and coloring pages suitable for toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarten. The crafts use materials found around the house, like egg cartons, cardboard, paper, boxes, string, crayons, paint, glue, etc.
