CHAMPAIGN -- Snow days, cold days, call them what you want. Kids have been out of school for more days than usual.

Some parents say they're starting to run out of ideas to keep kids busy. When it's as cold as it's been outside, you almost have to stay inside.

So, to keep kids busy and still keep their minds active, some parents say they've started taking trips to the library. While they're there, may play games with each other and some take advantage of the quiet time to read.

Kids say, even though it's fun to miss so many days of school, they're ready to go back. Another indoor option is the Orpheum Children's Museum.

Kim Chestnut brought her granddaughter, Kaiyah, for the first time. They had fun meeting new friends and exploring the museum.

Some parents say they're taking advantage of the extra time with their kids, but others who couldn't stay home had to arrange for daycare instead.
