You'll have to wait on the weather, it changes too quickly.

There are lots of things to do with kids here. Moody Gardens, Pleasure Pier, Schlitterbahn waterpark has an indoor heated park for winter. Ride the ferry across Bolivar Peninsula if the weather is warm and dry enough; be sure to take bread to feed the seagulls and watch for dolphins.

Be sure and take him to LaKing's Confectionary on the Strand for ice cream or candy treats!

Shweta--

knr has given you some great ideas. Another one your three-year old might enjoy would be is renting a bicycle- powered surrey you can pedal up and down the sidewalk just above the beach (if the weather is decent). Lately weather in Houston has been in low-mid 60's during the day, but another cold front or rain could come through at any time.

If weather holds up, he/she may enjoy playing on the beach, although water will be too cool for swimming. Would fishing from a pier be a possibility? Kids of all ages seem to enjoy the schlocky souvenir shops, particularly the ones that jut out over the water.

Have fun!
