impacts different things. But for the little ones, it was just a chance to play in the water while watching different things flow down a little river. It was hot outside — real hot — but you would have never known it watching my kids. They probably could have stayed outside all day if my wife and I hadn’t dragged them back inside. But don’t worry. Waiting inside in the air conditioning was Kidtropolis, where a city was waiting to be explored. One of the highlights of Kidtropolis is children can get jobs where they get paid and add their new money to their own bank card. Whether one wants to make drinks at a café, bag groceries at HEB, work as a veterinarian or drive an ambulance, there are jobs for everyone. And before we moved on, my little ones might have tried each one. And they banked some serious
cash in the process. After hours of playing and laughing and without even knowing it, learning, mom and dad were wiped out. But even as we tried to drag them away, my son saw something he hadn’t done yet — the Challenge Course. The Challenge Course is a rope course where kids can climb and maneuver and work their way around the course while mom and dad watch from below. More and more fun. When we finally left, the kids were exhausted. It was hard just keeping them awake on the drive home. But they were ready for more. The Children’s Museum of Houston was a great way to spend the afternoon, and we didn’t even see the whole thing. If you have children, especially younger than teens, give it a shot. It’s reasonably priced and an easy drive from Meridiana or Sterling Lakes.
Hands-on activities are around every corner at the children’s museum.
