Free Things to Do With Houston Kids in January

In the months of November and December, there were many things gained and lost; typically pounds and money, respectively. My husband and I always begin the holiday season with the best of budgeted intentions, but come out into the New Year doing everything we can to avoid those pesky bank statements. Luckily for all Houston families, there is lots of free kid-friendly fun happening around town in January. You don't have to start the new year locked inside trying to save money - get out there and enjoy some free family fun!
