Make the Second Half of February Fun Courtesy of The Childrens Musuem of Atlanta

However, after a few days cabin fever starts to set in and you may be looking for things to do outside of the house to keep your kids occupied once the roads are all thawed out. Well as always, The Children's Museum of Atlanta has come to the rescue with a ton of fun and educational programming that will keep even the friskiest child thoroughly attentive and entertained.
