Take a guided tour to Birka and see how and where vikings lived. It´s very interesting and easy enough even for quite small children. The guides are archeologists and can really turn on your curiosity and interest! Take the boat from central Stockholm or park the car somewhere on the way and hop on. See www.stromma.se for timetable
Take a ferry fro Adelsö and spend a whole day in the first Viking trading town- Birka. There is a cultural program every day during the summer and a lot of workshops and museum buildings to visit. Take a historical walk around the surroundigs, eat a proper Viking meal and have a swim before the boat takes you back home
