HOUSTON—While Mother Nature was raining on the Halloween fun outside, kids were having a blast inside at the Children’s Museum of Houston. There were princesses, future crime fighters and some kids cleverly disguised as Spring Branch I.S.D. Cedar Brook Elementary School students on a field trip.
Special for this holiday, the museum had Halloween-themed stations. One of the most popular was the Slime Station with slime races.
From face painting to costume creation like rumpus hats, it was a kid’s paradise, but this is a museum so you can’t escape the learning.
There was a math station. 10 year old Thomas Boyd was doing a project on symmetry. Doing math during a Halloween party? Thomas explained, “It’s my favorite subject.” He added, “You get to sit here and get candy and you get to learn at the same time.”
Among all the caped crusaders, there was one Batman, in a wheelchair.
His secret identity is 4 year old Angel Bonilla who’s fighting some real evil, Cerebral Palsy, with a sweet nature. He and little brothers, Robin and Superman were having a great time trick or treating.
Regular admission is $9 per person. On Halloween night, the whole family gets in free from 5 – 8pm, closing time.
