Family Friendly Weekend Ideas

I'm looking for some ideas of kid friendly weekend activities in the North and West suburbs of Chicago.(WI border S to 88/ from the Lake W to St. Charles/Elgin) We have a 3 and 5 yr old and we need some inspiration beyond Chuck e Cheese. :)

We've already done the Kohl's kids museum in Glenview - great place by the way - Six Flags, Navy Pier, and the zoos.

I thank you in advance for your great help!

Hang in there! You have a great waterpark and lakefront in Highland Park - it won't be long until you can enjoy them. Also, check the HP village website - I know there is a nature center that's part of the park district. For more nature, try the Botanic Garden in Glencoe (especially the Japanese Garden), or Wagner Farm or The Grove in Glenview:

LOVE the jelly belly "factory" but we went last Spring Break - we hit the Eli's Cheesecake factory this yr. Eli's is SOOOO worth the $3 because you get a full piece of cheesecake AND samples of new flavors.
