Best Things To Do in Houston in February with Kids: Puppets, Shows, and Daddy Daughter Dances

Love is in the air this month and to celebrate we're sharing some of the things we love to do in Houston. 

First up on the list: visiting some of the awesome museums in the Bayou City for FREE. Houston is home to a plethora of museums and many of them offer free museum admission days... or are free every day! Get out and support your local museums with a visit to show your love for the culture and creativity they bring to our city. And speaking of museums, did you see the newest museum installation in Houston? Seismique Interactive Art Museum offers a unique and creative way for your fam to spend the day and let your imaginations run wild. We highly recommend checking this new space out!

We are also loving family road trips to break up the monotony of being at home, and these six Texas destinations have the potential for snow during the winter months. As an added bonus, even if there isn't snow there are lots of cool things to see at all of these hotspots, like infamous Cadillac Ranch and the stunning views of Big Bend National Park and Palo Duro Canyon State Park. 

Finally, we always love a good indoor play space, but they become especially crucial during the colder months. Houston is home to so many great ones, and they have all taken plenty of precautions to provide a safe way for your kids to get out of the house and burn off some energy. 

For even more Houston fun this month, check out our winter bucket list post and subscribe to our FREE Mommy Poppins Houston newsletter to get the latest news and activities delivered to your inbox.
