Happy Columbus Day
Yesterday we got a break from school on Columbus day,which for me was very much needed after super packed busy fun weekend.I wanted my kids to know the significance of the day beside obvious ‘no school day’.So we read the story of Christopher Columbus,little trip down the history lane to find more about the discovery of new world.
My daughter thought it was funny that Columbus thought,he reached Indies or India and called the people native Indians.It does cause confusion for her since her mom is Indian but not native Indian :-)Oh Columbus,only he knew that he has made an totally cool new discovery by mistake !
So,i tried,only tried to bring columbus day to the lunch.Here you have
- Jelly sandwich with cheese sail,make it look like one Columbus’ three boats,Ñina, Pinta and Santa Maria
- Apple slices with grapes as sail,to mimic second of Columbus boat and you have to just imagine the third boat there 🙂
- Chicken strips
