You could visit one temple as well - Kabaleeswara Temple, Parthasarathy Temple or Vadapalani Temple. Rippon building, Santhome Church, Birla Planetorium, Guindy National Park or others to consider.

Day-1: Start from Chennai 7am, Visit Crocodile park at ECR, and Reach Mahabalipuram at 9am, Visit Shore temple, Pancha Rathas, Arjuna's Penance, Light house, Museum and tiger cave. It should be over around 1pm. Finish lunch, and Visit Dhakshin Chitra or any Amusement part (VGP or MGM), Muttukadu Boating.

Day 2 : Visit Any beach at morning (Marina, Elliots or Thiruvanmiyur), Visit Guindy National park, Snake Park, Birla Planetarium & Science centre (I strongly recommend that your 7 year old kid will have fun here), For Evening, Visit any shopping mall like City centre, Phoenix or Express Avenue.

Take Ola cab

Rentals options if visiting multiple places in short time - You can select 8 Hrs 80kms.

Or book regular Ola and cut it then and there.

Birla Planetarium - Badly maintained / Better to avoid.

Egmore Museum is good, temples good if you visit when not crowded.

Phoenix Market city / EA Mall - Good and air conditioned, Good movie theaters

Beach - Besant Nagar got good number of restaurants - Can go early in the morning / evening.

Dhakshina Chitra / Mahabalipuram / Vandalur zoo / Crocodile park - Check weather forecast and see if kids can take up that heat.

Vandalur zoo - take private battery car for 2 Hrs, 1 Hrs 300 Rs. Need to be there at 9am, else will have to wait as they got limited number of battery cars.
