My husband has four neices and a nephew ages, 7, 4, 4, 2, 1 who live down in Maricopa and we wanted to take the older ones to go do something fun but we don't know what to do with kids in the Phoenix area.

Is there a Children's museum or other (indoor) fun activity that would appeal to that age range?

Poor babies have been without their mama for awhile and I'm sure could use something fun to do. The 2 year old boy is especially having a hard time!

If you can, get a culture pass from the library www.theculturepass.org for the science center or childrens museum. Childrens musueum is also free 1st sunday of the month, along with the natural history museum. Another fun place indoors is makutus islands, if you go their website you can sign the kids up for the free kids club and their first visit will be free. There's also lot's of splash pads http://phoenix.about.com/od/publicsw...s/splash_5.htm . If you want more ideas let me know.
