Where are you staying? Canaan Resort has kids programs for guests, including guided nature walks, wagon rides, kite making, crafts, etc. If you are not a guest, you can participate in most/ all of those activities for a small fee. canaanresort.com/activities/…

Here are a few other suggestions:

Indoor pool and outdoor pool at Canaan Resort.

Miniature Golf at Canaan Resort.

Miniature Golf at Canaan Village Inn.

Miniature Golf at Deerfield Village Resort.

Big John's Family Fixins (pizza and arcade).

Nature Trails at Canaan Resort.

Bike Rentals.

Scenic Chairlift rides at Timberline and at Canaan Ski area.

Kite making at Canaan Resort.

Playground at Canaan Campgrounds.

Horseback Riding and/ or Petting Zoo at Mountain Trail Rides.

Paddle Boats on Pendleton Lake (at Blackwater Falls).

Swimming at the Pendleton Lake Beach (Blackwater Falls).

Nature Programs at Blackwater Falls.

If you are up for a short drive, you might want to consider taking the kids to either Smoke Hole Caverns, or Seneca Caverns. Both are well worth the trip!

You should check out Mountain Trail Rides on Freeland Road. They have pony rides, a petting zoo, gemstone mining, and an awesome Adventure Cave where children (and adults) can hunt for treasure using mining hats and buckets in an underground setting. My grandchildren LOVED the cave! Also, the folks are really friendly and they have a lot of friendly animals and a nice porch to just hang while the kids play. You will be happy that you went there!
