Late departing flight - what can i do beforehand ?

WE are traveling with 2 kids and departing CHCH on a flight that ;eaves at 1am. We will have previously dropped off a campervan, probably around the 4-5pm time.

After we have done this (not sure if its city or airport location) what can we do to kill time before our flight bearing in mind we have luggage and 2 kids with us and no further rented transport.

Suggestions most appreciated

If you I would check into a motel near the airport, drop off the campervan early, spend a couple of hours at the Antarctic Centre which is right beside the airport (it closes at 5.30pm) then return to your motel/hotel and enjoy a relaxed dinner. The kids can sleep or watch a movie before time to go check in for your flight.

Safe travels :)
