Here are the things to do in Houston this week and Easter weekend!

James and the Giant Peach opens at Main Street Theater and it’s sure to be fabulous.  Get your tickets for the 1:00 or 4:00pm show.  Dress up or dress down, this theater is small and casual.  The only requirement is that kids must be older than 3 years old.

Houston’s animals get their own egg hunt on Sunday.  Stop by the Houston Zoo to see the animals get egg-themed enrichment all day.  Kids can also participate in scavenger hunts and egg-themed activities.

The Discovery Green Flea is moving back to the evening hours this weekend.  On Saturday, starting at 6:00pm, you can tour the local vendor’s booths, grab some dinner and, our favorite, people watch.  Also at Discovery Green, toddlers will get to participate in a free storytime and activity on Tuesday.  Bring your preschooler to meet Tigger and Pooh!

Here we are Houston:  Right in the middle of festival and egg hunting season!

Head to Hermann Park this weekend for the Japan Festival and, for park members, free unlimited train rides!  Family memberships are $50 per year and support a great park and have many perks, including free train rides!

Take part in a leisurely egg hunt at Blessington Farms.  Children hunt for 10 eggs and then redeem them for prizes.  Or take part in an Easter Orange Hunt at the Orange Show.  Yes, Easter ORANGE Hunt.  Kids can search for candy-filled eggs, oranges and other fun prizes!

Discovery Green is hosting Earth Day Houston and also has kayaks ready for you to ride.  On Tuesday, preschoolers (30″ and taller) will get to ride a real monster truck!  Take your little ones to Toddler Tuesday and be sure to stop by the BigKidSmallCity tent!

Another week, another long list of things to do in Houston with kids!

It’s the first week of April, so it’s time for another Hands-On Houston at the Craft Museum.  This month you can make a free charm or bracelet.  Just stop by between 11:00 and 3:00!

BubbleFest is also on Saturday at Hogg Middle School Spark Park.  There will be  games, food, drinks, photos, and 2 giant bubble pits!  Bring a towel and some dry clothes to this event!

On Sunday, the first of three Sunday Streets will kick off in the Heights.  White Oak from Heights to Fulton will be closed to cars and open to pedestrians and bikes!  It’s an opportunity for families and neighbors to be outside and celebrate the streets of Houston!

You can also enjoy the outdoors at Discovery Green.  They have brought back the kayaks and you can ride on Saturday and Sunday for $5 per person.  Also, it looks like the weekly Young Writers Workshop has a new name.  Dia at Discovery with WITS  is on Saturday morning in the Discovery Green library.

Also at Discovery Green is the Toddler Tuesday Egg Hunt on April 8!  There will be 20,000 prizes for the kids to find!  Bring out your preschoolers and be sure to stop by the BigKidSmallCity booth!

Toddlers should also head to the Children’s Museum on the first Wednesday in April for the Mommy Mingle.  Caregivers enjoy a free breakfast and coffee while the little ones (under 35 months old) play in the tot spot.

And finally, join me at St. Stephan’s Church and School on Saturday, March 29, as we celebrate Houston’s Montrose neighborhood.  We will watch the new One Square Mile: Texas Montrose episode, airing in on Houston PBS the next day, and talk with the producer, Carl Crum.
