Where else would Santa Claus be during the two weekends before Christmas but in a toy-building operation? And The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk is honored to have him in its Toy Boat Workshop Dec. 9-10 and 16-17.

Santa will oversee youngsters and their projects in the Aquarium's festively retooled Toy Boat Workshop on weekends Dec. 9-10 and 16-17, all days between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. (Please note that, shortly before 12:15 and 2:15 p.m. each day, Santa will take breaks from building toys to become "Shark-Diving Santa," joining the Aquarium scuba team to swim among the sharks in the "Ocean Beyond the Sound" exhibit.)

Whether you build a toy boat or not, Santa Claus will accept children's wish lists and pose for photos for free, so bring your camera to snap a keepsake memory. Cost to build a boat is $5 in addition to Aquarium admission. It takes about 15 minutes. Get details about all of the popular family attraction's holiday offerings, including "'Polar Express' Pajama Parties" at www.maritimeaquarium.org.
