Coronavirus Closures in Houston: Schools, Museums, Libraries, Play Spaces

It's our job at Mommy Poppins to bring you the best ideas, events, and places for family fun. But with this week’s continuing and unprecedented response to the coronavirus pandemic, we’re here to tell you where not to go. As you probably already know, most of the kid-friendly programs, events, and yes, even schools, have been shut down for the near future. To help you best plan and prepare for this tough stretch, we’ve compiled the schools, museums, zoos, play spaces, and more that have closed their doors to help stop the spread of this virus. 

If you and the kids are stuck at home, we’ve got plenty of ideas for you! With our hundreds of ideas for games, crafts, and activities, “I’m bored” shouldn’t be a phrase you hear too often. So be sure and check out the Mommy Poppins Coronavirus Guide for Parents, which is filled with fun activities as well as insider tips for keeping your loved ones safe and healthy. Our event calendar is also being updated with cancellations and postponements. We here at Mommy Poppins Houston send best wishes to everyone affected by this virus.
