Parents happy to get stir-crazy kids out of the house


With schools being closed so much because of the weather kids and their parents have been looking for something to do.

The Kroc Center in South Bend and the Concord Mall in Elkhart had a good turnout Wednesday.  Kids could be seen playing ping-pong, video games and running around the play area.

Children and parents we spoke to say it's good to finally get out of the house.  "When they shut down the streets on Tuesday it was ok because we could get out, but it was horrible because we couldn't move around so I'm happy to come here and get my energy out," said Mateo Graubart.

Andrew Smith felt the same way.  "Just trying to get out of the house, kids really wanted to get out, my wife she's been cooped up all week," said Smith.

Programs like the Kroc Center's Day Camp were popular with parents to keep their kids from going stir-crazy.
