From Dinosaur Adventure to the Harlem Globetrotters, here are some fun events for kids in Houston this week.

William Shatner @ Arena Theatre

Sunday, February 16 | 7:30PM

If you haven’t already been introducing your kids to your favorite show, Star Trek, what are you even doing? This Sunday night, they can see William Shatner live at the Arena Theatre. This is a part of Shatner’s tour, Beam Me Up. This event starts off with a screening of the classic film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Once the flick is over, Shatner will come onstage and talk to the audience about his stories working on Star Trek and even answer audience questions! This is a great opportunity for all trekkie’s to meet a legend. Grab tickets on SeatGeek starting from $88.

Dinosaur Adventure @ George R. Brown Convention Center

Saturday, February 15 | 10AM

This Saturday afternoon, take your kids to the George R. Brown Convention Center for Dinosaur Adventure! If you purchase the VIP ticket for $55, your child gets to have access to the dinosaur exhibit, make and take fossils, create fun crafts, do a dinosaur dig, and a scavenger hunt. There will also be entertainments such as a walking dinosaur show, a baby dinosaur show, and a dinosaur dance along. Did I mention there were dinosaurs here? This is a great way to fuel your child’s love for these prehistoric beasts.

Urban Bird Walk @ Discovery Green

Friday, February 14 | 11:30AM

For one hour this Friday afternoon, you get an opportunity to go to the Urban Bird Walk happening at Discovery Green. This walk will be lead by some bird experts who will help you discover all the real wildlife in downtown Houston. This is a simple educational activity you can go with your kid while also getting a little bit of exercise in, which is always welcome. Additionally, this is a great way to birth future retired elderly people who bird watch as a hobby. This event is free!

Monday Mania @ Jumping World

Monday, February 10 | 12PM

Any event that could potential tire our kids out so they’ll go to sleep quickly is one we love. This Monday afternoon, take your kids to Jumping World for Monday Mania. Nothing says fun quite like a trampoline park. This Monday, you can benefit from ALL games at Jumping World being 50% off. This is a great opportunity to let your kid have some fun on a Monday and you won’t break the bank.

Harlem Globetrotters @ Fertitta Center

This Saturday afternoon, don’t miss an opportunity to show your kids the iconic Harlem Globetrotters.
