First there are a couple of children's store in town. Will your shopping make sure you stop in the Northshire Book Store, your kid will love the children's department on the third floor.

If you want to give the kid a chance to cut loose and use up some engergy take them to the Dana Thompson Rec Park http://www.town.manchester.vt.us/parks.htm [on Route 30 just outside of town], they have some really great play grounds, and it a good place for a picnic lunch. Also if you happen to be in town on a Thursday this is where we hold the Farmer's market.

Your children are little young for Hildene [the Lincoln Estate], but there are some great trails, and the garden's are beautiful and they have animals www.hildene.org/html/farm___grounds.html

This may seem strange, but I'll your children will also enjoy the Orvis Flagship Store, they have several trout pond where you can watch the big fish.

They would alos love a trip down Route 7A the Hidden Spring's Ice Cream Stand. It's located on a working farm, and the ice cream is worth the trip [personal favorite is the Pumpkin Spice]. If you will be town closer to fall, across the road from this is the Equinox Pumpkin Patch equinoxvalleynursery.com/pumpkinpatch.html

that one can't miss.

Along with the shopping that should fill up your day, prety well.
