February Is Big Month for Kids Activities in Houston

Yesterday evening, the Kids Activity Queen was on the Sunday evening show with Susan O'Donnell on 89.3 KSBJ radio. How fun! We gave away four copies of the guidebook 100+ Activities for Houston Kids and took questions from various Houston parents about fun things to do with kids in the area. It never ceases to amaze me how much families want to do fun activities with kids, if only they had a trusted resource to get them going. Ta-da! My guidebook exists for this purpose. Any ways, it was a great way to get the message out about the book. A special thanks goes to Sally Woodward, who called into the show. Miss Sally is an old friend who watched my sister and me grow up in Houston along side her own 2 daughters. Thanks for your support, Miss Sally!

This month, Kylie & I will be venturing out to tackle some new activities. On Valentine's Day, we'll be headed to the Dairy Ashford Roller Rink in west Houston for the 1st Annual Valentine Skate. Parents can bring strollers for the little ones and still have fun making trips around the rink. Kiddie music plays and the children are going to love this. Hope to see lots of Houston families there. 9:30 am - Noon.

We're also planning to head to the Museum of Natural Science and Hermann Park for some fun. I'll be sure to report back on the museum's offerings for kids under 1 year.

Unfortunately, we'll miss the Rodeo Parade this year because we're heading to Galveston for the Childrens Parade on 2/26. This is good, clean fun for the family. Kids love the colors and activity. Catching beads and cups just for wavering to the float riders is a delight. The parade is scheduled to begin at 2 pm on 25th Street. Hope to see you there.

If you are wondering about certain Houston-area activities for kids, email me at and I'll be happy to check out the activity and report back. Until the next nap time...
