For a 6 yr old girl, you can do a "girls day out" - take her out for a "manicure" - you don't have to get a real, grown up one - just make an appt for a color change, so she gets her nails painted. Then go to lunch and do dessert first, then lunch. After lunch, go to a movie or something like that.
You can also go to the zoo, and still do the lunch and all of that.
For a little boy, you can do the same thing, but skip the nails :-)
I remember once when my aunt took me, my sis, and one of our cousins. We went to the movies and had pizza for dinner and then we got to stay all night at her house where we baked Christmas cookies. That was about 30 yrs ago, and I still remember how much fun that was.
You could do something similar with the 2 yr old -the zoo, riding the rides at the mall (if you've got a mall with a merry go round or something in it), a day at your house making home made play dough or cookies, etc.
