If you're looking for some fun outdoor activities, Harris County Precinct 4 has a lot planned. The precinct's newsletter Parkscape is a wonderful resource for Houston families, especially those living in or near precinct 4. (Here's a map of precinct 4's parks.)
During Spring Break, Jones Park will have various activities planned to teach kids about frogs, fangs and stargazing. For kids 10-15, the Junior Canoe Training will teach the basics of canoeing and then take the kids on a half-day trip. Reservations are required.
I especially like the Calendar of Events section of the newsletter that spells out all the activities throughout precinct 4 from March - May. From Breakfast with the Easter Bunny on March 31 to nature hunts to the Fishing Derby on April 28, you're bound to find something that entices your kids.
Sign up to receive the precinct's FREE printed newsletter by visitng http://www.hcp4.net/, calling 281-893-3726 or mailing your request to Public Affairs Department, 1731 Hugh Road, Houston, TX. 77067.
Until the next nap time...
