How to keep busy 2 kids (6, 4) on a rainy day?

I will have to take care of my two little cousins (6 and 4 y.o.) for the whole day on Saturday May 1st and the weather forecast seems to be quite convinced it is going to be a rainy day

We cannot stay at my place or at their house (they are moving that day, that's why I have them), so I need to find something to do

Any suggestion is welcome!!!

Take them on a long train ride ( a train that has the Family Section eg Zurich Hbf to Romanshorn or Zurich Hbf to Brig ).

You might also wish to consider visiting the Tram Museum ( http://www.tram-museum.ch/content.php?id=3 )

or

Technorama ( http://www.technorama.ch/index.php?id=2&L=1 )

or Starbie Dietikon
( http://www.starbie.ch/index2.html )

or

Aathal Dino Museum

Whatever you do, check that it is open on May 1st before you set out.

I found a flyer this morning, given out by the one of the Zürich Sites. There is one section on things to do with children. Maybe you could get an idea from there.
