Miller Outdoor Theater in Downtown Houston hosts great Children's Activities. You can take in a live performance geared just for children in the morning, have a picnic lunch then play in the water fountains! Then leave in time for everyone to take naps! Bring towels, sunscreen and a picnic lunch for a great time! Check out the link to find out what is being presented!
Did you know that Houston has free Museum Days? Plan your Summer and visit all the incredible museums. Health & Science Museum, Children's Museum, Museum of Fine Arts and more. Check out the link to find out all of the museums that Houston offers and the days that are free! Plan a picnic lunch and you got yourself a wonderful summer memory making day! One of our kids favorites was Family Day at Bayou Bend (usually the third Sunday of the month). We refered to Bayou Bend as our Houston Home :)
Lowes & Home Depot offer free workshops for kids usually every Saturday morning. This includes all of the materials, free aprons, goggles and instruction on a project. What a great memory to build something with your children! All you have to do is sign up for a spot!
Houston, Galveston and the Clear Lake Area have wonderful parks to explore with your family. We also have some great Nature Centers that provide hands on Activities and guided adventures in the outdoors for all ages!
