Christmas Break Fun for Kids in Middle Georgia

Christmas Break is here, and there are so many activities you can do with your kids right here in Middle Georgia!   As a matter of fact, there are so many, that I was able to come up with a calendar of one event or activity per day that you and your kids can enjoy for the next two weeks.  So, get out, enjoy what our area has to offer, and I do hope that all of you have a Merry Christmas.
