On Houston Life: Things to do in Houston, with kids!

For more things to do in Houston, with kids, check out today’s segment on Houston Life… and scroll to the bottom for details on each place we discussed!


Mounted Patrol Stables – Visiting the Houston Police Departments Mounted Patrol Stables might just be the coolest free thing to do in Houston.  Bring your own carrots, quartered apples and peppermints, and you can stop in to visit the horses, during visiting hours.

Bring a giant bag of carrots… like the ones you get a Costco… because there are nearly 40 hungry horses to feed!
Ramona Quimby at Main Street Theater – Do you remember this book from your childhood?  Well now it’s on stage at Main Street Theater.  This is meant for families and is good for boys and girls!


The Health Museum – This interactive museum always has something fun to do… but right now you can see Body Worlds RX and it is included with admission!

Spring Break Spectacular at Blessington Farms – U-pick strawberries and ALL things FUN on the Farm including hay rides, pedal cars, barrel trains, animal encounters with goats, chickens, camels and many more.

Swap Shop – In nature or in a book, find something that interest the kids. Learn about it and bring the item to the Swap Shop at the Houston Zoo. If you don’t have a shell or bone or physical item, you can bring in your “knowledge” or you can bring in a poster, report, diorama… anything to leave at the shop.

The kids earn points and get to swap it for items in the shop!  There are stones, shells, bones and more!
