Things to do in Houston today and this weekend, with kids! June 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 2013

It’s another exciting week in Houston.  Bayou Bend Detectives Days is open every day this summer, except for Mondays, and includes a fun scavenger hunt for the kids.  In fact, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston (MFAH) is really reaching out to kids this summer with many events.  In addition to Detective Days, the Storytime Tour is at Rienzi on Wednesday mornings, Art Detectives and Free Admission Day are at MFAH are Thursday and Family Zone is at MFAH is on Sunday.

Alice in Wonderland shows are schedule for all weekend and week at Main Street Theater.  And the Wonderland Ball is this Sunday.  There are not many tickets left, so get yours quick.  Sunday is also the Maritime Museum Family Festival at the Port of Houston.  It looks like a lot of fun for the kids with knot tying, model making and fireboat demonstrations.

If you want to run around, Blessington Farm has blackberry picking and the Family Fun Zone on Saturday.  Discovery Green also has Kayaking on Kinder Lake, concerts and more.  Want some air conditioned exercise?  Try Bowling for Rhinos at Palace Bowling Lanes.

Look for the complete list of events for Thursday through Wednesday below.  Be sure to also check out this list of free Houston activities for any day of the week!
