Maybe you’re sick of Christmas carols by now, but for parents, there’s one that still resonates: The part of “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” that goes, “And mom and dad can hardly wait for school to start again.” You and the kids have been in the house together for six days so far, with five more to go. It’s time to get out.

We have a list of kid-friendly suggestions for those afflicted with cabin fever, and many of the events are free. From New Year’s Eve crafts to ”Cinderella” onstage, check out our guide to post-holiday events for kids.
