EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- With many school districts in our area still closed Tuesday, families are slowly venturing outside after being cooped up for several days, but indoor activities are still at the top of the list.

“It's been difficult not being able to get outside and enjoy some sledding,” said mother of two, Rachel Martin.

With five and eight year old boys at home, being cooped up for the second day straight, Martin brought her sons to Action City.

“You can tell when they're not in their routine they get kind of crazy with each other,” said Martin.

General Manager of the Metropolis Resort says it did see a lot of action. Families rented out 30 rooms Sunday night, anticipating schools being closed.

“It's just nice to get out; and there is so few options when it is this cold outside,” explained Benny Anderson, general manager of Metropolis Resort.

“My husband and I have each taken a day and we're trying to find something to do for Logan,” said Julie Denoyer.

So she bundled up and warmed up the car, to bring her 6-year-old to the Eau Claire Children's Museum.

“With it being so cold the past four days, we were in Saturday and Sunday for the most part, so we had to get out today (Tuesday),” she added.

“It’s the second day that I'm staying home,” said Shay Fisher.

Mom of 4-year -old Shay says her daughter misses preschool and can't wait to be back with friends.

“We don't need another snow day that's for sure,” said Kari Fisher.

“If I could have it, I would rather have the snow than the cold; so I say let's just have a lot of snow and the cold stuff can stay away,” added Denoyer.
