Turn Black Friday into something a little more fun. Try Thanksgiving with Santa at the Children's Museum of Houston. Kids can start off filling a cornucopia with pretend fruits and vegetables, then create a make-and-take paper bag turkey. They'll use their artistic talent in the float-making workshop, and proudly march with it in the Thanksgiving Day Parade. Finally, it's time to meet Santa (and maybe even get in a Christmas wish list). 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 1500 Binz. For information, call 713-522-1138 or visit www.cmhouston.org. $6 to $7.
Fri., Nov. 27, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., 2009
