Things to do in Houston today, and this weekend, with kids! October 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 2018

Make your plans for things to do in Houston, with kids!

Go to Discovery Green for moonGARDEN: “Goodnight, Moon”.  Wear your pajamas,  enjoy milk and cookies, stargaze with the Astrological Society and listen to the story.

Take the family to Hands On Houston: Mixed Media Sculptures at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft.  Play with form and color, as you experiment with pattern, texture, and proportion, to design your own small sculpture using a range of materials.

Watch Curious George: The Golden Meatball at Main Street Theater.  If you can’t get tickets for this weekend, plan ahead to see everyone’s favorite curious little monkey and his friend in the yellow hat.

Or find a farm, festival and pumpkin patch HERE!
