Things to do in Houston today and this weekend, with kids! August 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 2013

Hermann Park LakeThere is always something new to do in Houston!  Check out the list of things to do, with kids, from Thursday to next Wednesday!

Thursday is always free museum day in the Museum District.  It includes the new Egypt Hall at the Museum of Natural Science and, in August, it includes free back-to-school vaccinations at the Children’s Museum.

On Friday, you can stay late at the Houston Zoo.  Also, if you visit IKEA ahead of time, you can get free admission for up to 6 people.  Go HERE for details.  On Friday, you can also visit France via World Trekkers at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.

In case you haven’t heard, this weekend is a bad week to be a seal.  It’s Shark Weekend at the Downtown Aquarium.  You can celebrate National Shark Week with shark divers, conservation booths, dive shows and more.  Ride the train at the Aquarium or head to Hermann Park.  Members ride the Hermann Park train, all day, for free.

On Saturday, join the BigKidSmallCity crew at the Summer Fun Squad at Ervan Chew Park!  On Monday, join us again at the WaterWorks Education Center.  And don’t forget to mark your calendar for the Hermann Park Train Ride on August 15, Downtown Aquarium on August 19, and the Summer Fun Squad on August 24.  Contact me at Jill @ BigKidSmallCity . com to attend any of the Meet Ups!

Still not sure of what to do?  Look below for the full list or check out this list of free things to do in Houston!
