if yuh go to the national museum by memorial park they could hook u up with tours of port of spain by the national historical society or some such name.  i hear they are really interesting.  its a bus and walk tour that could take a morning to get through.

Buy some kites and take the kids to the savanah in town, buy them ice cream, coconut water, palourie etc. You could make a whole afternoon of fun for them that way and it cheap.
Take them to the beach as much as possible.
In Tobago again is beach but also take them to the fort up by the hospital and up in Plymoth.

Maybe movietown is an option for them too.
Ah know everything is town but really ah don't know of any attractions for kids down south apart from maybe the pitch lake.

San Fernando Hill, Point-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust, Mud vulcanoes on the way to New Grant, Roast Corn on the side of the road in Mayaro on the Naparima Main Road, Caroni Swamp tours, Down the islands as somebody say already (kid will love that)....plenty more man
