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

If you like public art, head to Hermann Park to see Patrick Dougherty’s stickwork sculpture by the Japanese Garden.  On Friday you can participate in the Art in the Park Reception at the Jones Reflection Pool.

This week is the last week for the Ice at Discovery Green.   Don’t miss the last Cheap Skates on Monday and Tuesday.  Skate rentals and admission is $5 instead of $12!  If you take the kids but don’t want to skate yourself, you can enter for free and your kids can practice in the toddler rink or big rink.

Also at Discovery Green is the Tet Festival on Saturday.  This day long festival celebrates the year of the horse!


On the other side of downtown, you can go to Super Saturday at Downtown Aquarium.  Print a coupon for every two people in your party… and print some extras for the friends you make in line!

You can find the Aurora Picture Show at Whole Foods Kirby on Saturday for the Stop Motion Animation Workshop.  RSVP to secure your kid’s spot or just show up!

Not too far away is the Museum Experience, Zone 1, featuring the Menil, Center for Photography and Rothko Chapel.  There will be a lot of free activities and lots of food truck options!
