Make your plans for the weekend, in Houston, with kids!

Go to the final performance of Sideways Stories from Wayside School by Main Street Theater at MATCH.  Or go to the sensory-friendly performance of Ballet Hispanico at Cullen Performance Hall at the University of Houston.

Take your Minecraft fans to Minefaire, The Ultimate Minecraft Experience at NRG.  It’s pricey, but try affiliate Groupon for some $19-$29 tickets or use code BigKidSmallCity on the official Minefaire site.

Or go to the free Bayou Bend Family Day “Portraits of American Families” for activities, demonstrations, and performances in the gardens and the historic mansion. Learn about the families of early America through the art and objects they left behind.
