Seasons of Sharing at Children’s Museum of Houston

Sample the winter holidays around the world during the Seasons of Sharing celebration at the Children’s Museum of Houston. The multicultural exhibits and events spotlight seven winter traditions, including Mexican posadas, Africa--American Kwanzaa and the lunar New Year. As the kids wander down an international street lined with playhouses representing different celebrations, they’ll explore the customs and traditions of the seven highlighted cultures. Activities corresponding to a different tradition will be offered each week. Kids can make piñatas (for the posadas), menorahs (for Hanukkah) or corn necklaces (for Kwanzaa). Or they can watch Spotlight Performances with Harmonies, Mariachi Hermosa Juvenil and others. Noon to 6 p.m. Sundays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays. 1500 Binz.
