Fun Activities to Do in Houston with Kids

With the largest city in Texas and the fourth-largest city in the U.S., Houston offers endless fun for the entire family. Since we couldn't do much over spring break because Caden had baseball games, I tried to at least make "one day of fun" for the boys over spring break.





There is always something new to uncover in this dynamic metropolitan area. Since we had to squeeze it all in one day, I thought we would do something educational and entertaining!

When you visit the Houston Museum of Natural Science, you're going to have the opportunity to explore and discover about our entire world! You and your family will learn about galaxies and space, go back in time when dinosaurs walked about Earth, view glamorous jewels and gems, learn about Texas and African wildlife, and can even go on a butterfly scavenger hunt.

The Burke Baker Planetarium includes the world's leading digital planetarium software and projection system and presents astronomical programs. Along with the Wortham Giant Screen Theatre, Houston's first IMAX theatre offers state-of-the-art, 4K digital projection producing incredible 3D images nearly eight stories high that provides reports about wildlife, oceans, weather phenomenon, and even faraway places.


I was very excited to see the BODY WORLDS & The Cycle of Life, a limited-time exhibition. The collection delivers with the human body's inner workings, showcasing the effects of poor health, good health, and lifestyle choices. You will be in awe if you get a chance to visit this collection. It's pretty unbelieve to see inside the body.

Just a Tip: Cam and I found out that it's usually cheaper to become members when purchasing tickets. You might want to try with and without the membership to check on prices.

Houston Kart Racing

Caden and I watched Formula 1: Drive to Survive on Netflix during spring break. It's a series that follows Formula 1 drivers as they have to uncover the challenges and adversities that come along with driving a car nearly 200 miles per hour and the business side of Formula 1.


Our new Formula 1 obsession was my inspiration to find something the boys would think would be fun, and karting came to mind! Cam found Houston Karting Complex, and I couldn't have been happier with the experience.

I was nervous, but once you get started, your heart is pumping, and you smile ear to ear. I even drifted and felt like a rockstar! It's an outdoor track so go when the weather is nice, and it will make for one great afternoon! The boys couldn't have had a better time; shoot, Cam and I couldn't have had a better time. Definitely fun for the entire family!

If you have boys, I 100% highly recommend visiting. However, be mindful that this is serious racing; it's not bummer cars. The karts go fast, and people there are serious about racing! Also, your kiddo has to be 12 and at least 55 inches tall to drive.



If you are local and need a fun outing with the kids for spring or summer, I highly recommend these two places. Thanks Houston for the wonderful day!


Happy Tuesday, friend!


Blessings,
