Hi Jamesw! The Wengen area offers lots of activities, very attractive to children as well. If your daughter is really adventurous, she may want to give paragliding
a try. Boat rides over lake Thun and lake Brienz can be recommended too, just as the cable cars and mountain trains around Wengen. Our examples of a roundabout journey in the Bernese Oberland
may give you an impression of the mountain transportation options. Please take a look at the day trips list
and hiking tips
as well. I'm not sure if you are good hikers and if your daughter is trained. If so, you will love the beautiful hike First-Schynige Platte
(or the other way around). Be sure to prepare well though and to be equipped with proper hiking gear. If you have little or no hiking experience, it's wiser to start off with shorter and easier trips.
As for the last few days of your stay: it's quite hard to decide where to spend them, as there are so many options. If you like Wengen and its surroundings (and you probably will), it's no problem to stay there the rest during the last days too; you won't get bored quickly. Do you want to return via Geneva (or the south-western part of the country) as well? If so, I would recommend to spend a couple of days in either the Simmen valley
(Zweisimmen/Gstaad) or Zermatt
. Both regions can be visited on your way back to Geneva, although getting to Zermatt or Saas-Fee would require you to make a detour. If it doesn't matter where you end your stay, you could also consider lake Lucerne
I hope this is of any help, since I'm not able to decide for you and there are so many regions worth visiting :-). You can best take a look at the regions I mentioned (just follow the links) and find out what appeals to you most.
