On BigKidSmallCity, we provide weekly events, a Houston area park review, a family friendly restaurant review and lots of things to do with kids.
It’s not just a laundry list of things to do… but actual parent reviews and recommendations.
Here’s what I mean…
A while back, I was at Target, looking for a Bingo game. I was standing in front of a hundred games and did not see Bingo… but I did see Zingo.
I asked my mom, “If Bingo is good, Zingo must be better, right?”.
Just then, a dad came over and told me that Zingo means there are 10,000 plastic pieces on your rug that won’t fit back into the dispenser and makes everyone angry.
That is not what the box said, but that is a good parent review.
When we provide reviews and recommendations on BigKidSmallCity, we’ve pushed a stroller through the giant crowds, found restrooms in the worst of locations and pleaded with three tired kids to get from the very back of the zoo to the parking lot.
We also use all our photos and no stock photos. You get to see what we saw when we visited.
That said, we also believe that a rising tide lifts all ships. We’re not here to say we know everything to do in Houston. In fact, I’ll share my favorite things to do in Houston and hope you will do the same.
Some of my favorites are below… and please comment with your favorite things to do (big and small!):
Bring a giant bag of carrots… like the ones you get a Costco… because there are nearly 40 hungry horses to feed!
Kids arrive in the morning and help open up the train barn, perform safety checks, wash the train and get the railroad ready for the day. After about an hour of preparations, they sit right next to the conductor and help take the train around to Kinder Station.
