mission control playhouse

You and your family have an opportunity to test out an out-of-this-world-style playhouse before potentially winning it and bringing it home.

And it’s all for a good cause.

HomeAid Houston’s Project Playhouse, in partnership with First America Homes, unveiled its “Mission Control” playhouse earlier this year. The two nonprofits are selling raffle tickets for $5 each in an effort to raise more funds for First America Homes to continue helping homeless families.

Typically, the intricate play structure would have been on display during Houston Astros home games, but the COVID-19 pandemic impacted those plans.

So, the Woodlands Children’s Museum has stepped up to fill the void. Now through Oct. 16, you and your family and go to the museum, see the play structure and purchase raffle tickets for $5 a pop to potentially win and bring it home.

“The opportunity to host Project Playhouse at the museum is a great fit for our mission to educate, empower, and excite children and families through play,” Angela Colton, executive director of The Woodlands Children’s Museum, said in a statement. “Play is such an important part of a child’s growth and development, and we are honored to be able to join HomeAid Houston in their support of play and for families in need.”

The “Mission Control” playhouse is a serious playhouse. It features an incredible spaceship design with plenty of amenities, including a flat-screen TV, gaming system, and gaming chairs. It’s also packed with space-themed furniture and is already set up for electricity and air conditioning.
