Sand sculpture

Are the kids a little bored with the backyard sandbox? Well, they won't know what to do first at the "Sand and Sculpt" event this weekend and Monday at Port Discovery. Children will assist Team Sandtastic -- Guinness Book record holders for the world's largest handmade sand castle -- in creating a giant sand sculpture using 20 tons of sand in the museum's atrium. Kids can attend clinics with Sandtastic members and will use their imaginations to create sculptures of their own and contribute ideas toward the giant sculpture.

The completed sculpture will remain on display through August.

Team Sandtastic conducts clinics Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in Port Discovery's atrium, 35 Market Place. The team will complete the sculpture Tuesday. The finished sculpture remains on view through August. Activity is free. Museum admission is $10; $7.50 ages 3-12; free for ages under 3. Call 410-727-8120.
