Thursday, June 18, 1987 Daily Nebraskan Page 7 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. I 20 OFF If you need sunglasses, we've got you covered. We offer Carreras, Wayfarers, Halstons, Vanderbilts. You name it.
