Corpus Christi Fun for Kids Weekday Picks January 2-5, 2017

Sunday, January 1, 2017
Another year and it's back to school and work for many of us.  Some of the weekly events are back this week and others won't be fully back until next. Make sure to follow the Facebook page because we are always posting events as they come up! Our libraries keep us busy so make sure to check their schedules for full activity lists. Compiling information is hard work, please link back to this site if using this information on your events calendar.  If you want to add your event to this list or work with Corpus Christi Fun for Kids to be a featured event, let us know.  Weekly activities with toddlers and pre-schoolers can be found here.
