Things to do in Houston today and this weekend, with kids! August 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 2013

Houston MuralThere are only 2 weeks until school starts, but that is still plenty of time for some Houston fun!

On Thursday, tour the Museum District museums for free and then head to Hermann Park.  At 4:30pm, join the BigKidSmallCity crew for dinner at Pinewood Cafe and a ride on the Hermann Park Train.  (RSVP here.  Spaces are limited!)

On Saturday, cool off at Brazos Bookstore.  Storytime is at 11:30 and a very unusual event is at 7:00…  William Shakespeare’s Star Wars.  Or if you are looking for funky cool, Discovery Green has their night flea market and the Orange Show is hosting the Art Car Extravaganza on Saturday evening.

You can also get the kids cooking with Greenling or get them recycling at Whole Foods.  Or ride the kayaks or take a writing class or rent a model boat at Discovery Green.

Monday brings another BigKidSmallCity Meet up.  This time the little kids are headed to the Downtown Aquarium for the Mommy (or Daddy) & Me Small Fry Adventure.  We hope you can join us here!

Look for the long list of Houston events below and this list of free things to do in Houston any day of the week!
