Santiago day trips
Teatro Municipal de Santiago - The Municipal Theater is an absolutely gorgeous building, and worth going to see an opera or ballet performance. A friend who took his daughters to La Boheme reports that everyone is very friendly and the audience really gets into the spirit of it all. For schedule of performances, check out the Teatro Municipal.
Fun food
Ice cream comes in all kinds of shapes and flavors, like cream and chocolate, cherimoya, orange, raspberry, mint, banana. Try ice cream with caramel mixed in. Every place you go, try a scoop (or two, or three, ... make it lunch).

Shopping
Everywhere you turn, you'll see handicrafts fairs where kids can buy jewelry, copperware, carvings, children's toys, pottery, woolen and musical instruments. In towns and villages, look for handicraft fairs on the weekends.
