Things to do in Houston today and this weekend, with kids! August 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 2013

WaterFountainHere we go again!  Another week full of fun family-friendly activities in Houston!

On Thursday, you can Eat, Shop and Rock at Mid Main’s First Thursday, benefiting American Festival for the Arts.  There will be live music, art shows and appetizer specials.

Thursdays are also Free Admission Day at many Houston Museums.  At the Children’s Museum, this also includes free immunizations on Thursdays in August.

On Saturday, you can make a free braided tassel accessory at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft’s monthly Hands-On Houston event.  Stop by between 11:00 and 3:00… no appointment is needed.

Also on Saturday, the Model Boats make a return to Discovery Green.  Rent 1 for 30 minutes and cruise along the pond.  See our review HERE.  Or, if you prefer to actually ride in a boat, try the kayaks right next door.

On Tuesday, celebrate George Hermann’s 170th Birthday at Hermann Park.  Children 12 and under can ride the Hermann Park Railroad for $1.70. Pinewood Cafe will serve vanilla soft serve for $1.70 and have free birthday cake while supplies last!
