Things to do in Houston today, this weekend, with kids! February 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 2014

Bridge over Buffalo Bayou to Bayou Bend

The Houston events calendar is full of fun things to do with the family!

I’m very excited for Detective Days at Bayou Bend.  Last summer Alex told us about how much fun it was.  The bonus now is that it’s not too hot yet!  Go to Bayou Bend on any day but Monday, park, cross the fantastic bridge and be given a scavenger hunt list of things to find on the property.  The hunt is for kids ages 6 and older, but last year younger kids were able to get the same clip board and magnifying glass without an issue.

I’m also looking forward to the Heritage Family Day at the Heritage Society.  This is a free events that with hands-on activities, crafts and refreshments. Kids will be able to learn how Houstonians lived after they began to build a city and create homes of their own.

The full list is below.  To plan for Spring Break, go here for events March 8-14 and here for events March 15-23!
