Things to do in Houston with Kids

Here is Kid Fun’s list of THINGS TO DO IN HOUSTON with kids through the month of October.

You can always count on Kid Fun to share ideas of things to do with your babies, toddlers, and children every day of the week.  Kid Fun shares places to go each day, special events and activities, kid friendly businesses, and lots more.  Kid Fun has ideas on things to do today, tomorrow, this week, and this weekend.

Houston is a big city, and it’s full of events and activities for the entire family.  I’ve compiled a list of things for you and your family to enjoy this week and this weekend.  Kid Fun is the place to go to find fun family activities in Houston along with free activities for kids.  There are lots of Houston events taking place right now.  You should be able to find something to do with all age groups including babies, toddlers, children, and older kids.  I hope that you enjoy the list full of cheap things to do, fun things to do, and free things to do.

The Kid Fun website is also a great resource for kid friendly businesses, museums, indoor play places, field trip ideas, summer camps, things to do this summer, kid friendly restaurants, kids eat free ideas, date night ideas, splash pads, parks, fire stations, etc.  You can count on Kid Fun to give you ideas for today, tomorrow, this week, and this weekend.
