Sometimes after the opening of the presents, the eating of the food, and the happy holiday making we get a little squirrely and are looking for things to do on Christmas Day out of the house. Generally, we have been out a lot around the holiday, but not necessarily doing things that we want to do or are sort of high stress. If you find yourself looking for somewhere to stretch your legs or change the scenery, try one of these ideas for family fun on Christmas Day!
