Things to Do in Houston on Thanksgiving Weekend

From all of us on the Mommy Poppins Houston team, we want to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving! We are so grateful for all of you who support us by reading our content and sharing our articles. Y'all are the best, and none of this would be possible without your loyal readership!

For any last-minute meal planning, here are kid-friendly restaurants open on Thanksgiving for an easy fix to feeding the family this holiday. No need to stress; just kick back, relax, and enjoy the day with loved ones. And if you're looking to get in some kid-friendly Thanksgiving festivities before and after the big day, we recommend heading to the Great Gobbler WonderWeek at both the Children's Museum of Houston and Fort Bend Children's Discovery Center
