Here are a few ideas, thanks for asking and for making time to be here. Sorry you will miss the Train, it is a very unique experience. Even when the Train is not running, their museum is typically open. My boy (only four, younger than your kids) absolutely LOVES it. They have full size engines, an amazing, large model train, old cars, and more. I would suggest contacting the Train closer to your trip to determine if the museum is open on Feb 27. The Clay Room is at 2053 North Main Ave and offers a Kids Painting Class on Feb 27. Here's the description ... This class is a kids and young adults painting class, ages 10-14. This class is held once a week for 4 weeks (Feb 6th to Mar 6th). No class on Feb 20th. Kids will learn the basics of painting while creating a work of art and interacting with other kids. All supplies are provided. Kids must wear cloths and shoes that can get dirty and stained. Call them for more info. The Powerhouse Science Center is open Mondays from 9 am to 4 pm. Entry is only $6 for kids and $7.50 for adults. They typically offer tons of hands on, interactive exhibits and kids typically love it. Call them to see what they will have on that day. If it's a nice day and your kids like to get outside, you can walk the River Trail through town. Most bike shops have bike rentals if you want to ride instead and can't bring your own bikes. If it's snowing, you can get a cheap sled from the the Ace Hardware store and sled down the hill at Buckley Park which is in Downtown at the north end. I hope this helps!
