Things to do in Houston this weekend, with kids! May 30, 31, June 1, 2, 2013

It’s almost summer break… this calls for starting the weekend early!  Thursday is the Museum District’s free admission day with 5 museums waiving the admission fee.  You can also take the kids to see The Jungle Book at Miller Outdoor Theatre on Thursday and Friday morning.  Starting on Friday, you can also visit the Hall of Ancient Egypt at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.  This Hall is a permanent addition to the museum and is included with general admission.

On Saturday you can make a free wooden toy car at the Craft Museum.   Afterwards, head downtown to Kayak on Kinder Lake and attend the family friendly Hurricane Workshop at George R. Brown.  Spend a little extra time in Downtown and find all THESE great attractions.

Looking for something a little different?  How about a scavenger hunt at the Bayou Bend Detective Days?  Or visit Blessington Farm, Froberg’s Farm, Arboretum at Night or the Urban Harvest Farmer’s Market.

Be sure to also check out this list of free Houston activities for any day of the week!
