Free Story Time

I learned about The Fish Gallery when I volunteered for the Junior League of Houston.  I was a volunteer at Camp Rainbow, a camp for children diagnosed with diabetes.  The Fish Gallery owner came to Camp Rainbow to do an event for the children there.  The kids learned about fish and touched salt water and fresh water animals. I watched the children light up during this experience, and I had to know more about this business. I learned that The Fish Gallery offered free story times during the summer.  I was single at the time, and I didn't have children.  I did make a big mental note because I knew that I would want to visit The Fish Gallery when I had kids of my own. By my son's first birthday, I was ready to bring him to story time events at The Fish Gallery.  Even though his attention span was limited, he loved them.  We attended almost all of the events offered that summer, and it was a long wait until the next summer. The story time events offered in the summer are amazing.  The coordinator reads a few fish related books to the children or books on the topic of that day.  The kids watch the staff climb a large ladder and feed the fish in a huge tank.  My son particularly loves the large turtle in the tank, but we enjoy watching all of the fish eat the food as it sinks down into the tank.  The kids walk to another room where they are able to feed fish on their own.  My kids always manage to sneak back in line for another round of food.  They really enjoy watching the fish eat the food that they dropped into the tank.  The group moves into another area of the store, and the kids are able to touch a variety of sea creatures in fresh water tanks and salt water tanks.  I don't know another place to go where my children can touch a lobster, a sea urchin, a starfish, etc.  After the activities conclude, the group gathers in the party room or craft room.  The kids work on a craft while enjoying healthy snacks provided by The Fish Gallery. The Fish Gallery story time events are not only free, but they provide an hour of activities that will have your kids engaged, learning, and excited.  Who knew that a fish store could be so much fun! Since it was hard for me to wait from summer to summer, I picked up the phone and called The Fish Gallery.  They have offered several free events for Kid Fun Houston.  The members love them, and we can't get enough of them. The Fish Gallery is also a great venue for a birthday party.  If you are looking for a fun location that is easy for you, this is the perfect place to have a party.  The kids will love it, and your workload will be quite limited. This summer, The Fish Gallery is offering story time events on Thursdays at 3:30 p.m. from July 9 to August 20.  You have 8 weeks to enjoy this free event that your kids will absolutely love.
