Let Children’s Museum Houston bring an energizing, hands-on family learning event to your school!
Invite Children’s Museum Houston’s team to bring an energizing, hands-on family learning event to your school! Whether you need a large, family-fun event or a dynamic parent workshop, the Museum has a variety of programs that are perfect for your next school event.
Family Learning Events are held on school campuses during the school year (August - June) and are designed to engage the whole family in activities that support what children are learning in school. Activity Guide Books are distributed to each participating family to help parents continue the engagement at home. The events and books are bilingual (English/Spanish), feature 25 different activities, and only require common household items.
Parent Workshops are adult-only sessions that empower parents to be their child’s first teacher, supporting parents in their discovery of how to make learning fun with activities that also support their children’s success in school.
See below for details on both programs.
