Sandcastles, bubble-making, toys galore:
Creative fun for kids large and small
By Chris McCubbin
Staff Reporter
It is not generally considered
necessary, when one is building
sandcastels, to consult with profes
sionals. Still, if a team of profes
sional architects was to design and
built a sandcastle, the result should
presumably be a markedly superior
grade of sandcastle.
This premise will be put to the
test at the American Institute of
Architects Lincoln Chapter's
sandcastle building contest where
teams of professionals including
several local architecture firms
will compete to build the biggest,
best and most beautiful sandcastle.
Greg Smith of AIA, said that an
architect designs a sandcastle with
a view to its being structurally
sound, with a pleasing aesthetic.
Structurally sound is, of course, the
tricky part when one is working
with sand.
The castles will be built entirely
from sand and water. Smith said no
fly ash or other cement-like materials
are allowed. Decorating and garnish
ing the castles is, however, en
couraged, Smith said.
Construction will begin at 10 a.m.
on Saturday and all castles will be
completed by 4:30 p.m.
The AIA will also be sponsoring
children's sandpainting for kids who
want to express themselves.
Here's more of the many activities
offered at the children's festival:
OCamp Fire is sponsoring an
obstacle course and button making.
The NU State Museum will bring
many of the hands-on exhibits from
their encounter center to the festi
val. OThe YWCA will allow children to
create their own "Disc Graphics"
art works.
OThe Nebraska State Recycling
Association and Citizens for En
vironmental Improvement are creat
ing an educational "Recycling Path."
OThe Nebraska State Historical
Society is bringing their "Pastimes
and Playthings" activity, which
allows modern children to play with
authentic reconstructed toys and
games from the turn of the century.
O Theatre Arts For Youth is spon
soring a paper bag puppet show.
OThe Omaha Children's museum
is sponsoring what amounts to a
festival within a festival. In addition
to displays of Indian and pioneer
artifacts, activities include: Indian
leather painting, buzz toy construc
tion, beaded leather key ring con
struction, Polaroid "Hug Pictures,"
fact paints, a Lego building block
area, "Bubble Factory," basket weav
ing, Indian Headbands, corn plant
ing and thumb print stationary.
Most of the activities" cost be
tween 25 or 50 cents.
