My kids set up 209 stuffed animals on every available surface in the bedroom.

You don’t need anything fancy to get this idea rolling. Simply have your kids find all their stuffed animals and pull them out. Then they arrange them in a pleasing manner on any available surface. If you luck out, they will use their own room to make an impressive display that will take them quite some time to set up (and even more time to put away).

A stuffed animal display also complements a kid hang out area. If they set up in their own personal space, they can leave the museum up for longer than one day without it hindering mobility around the house. And if you get really gung ho, you can have them sort stuffed animals once they collect them all. Organizing by type, color, or size have hidden educational benefits. And you may even convince them to relocate some of the less loved critters into a donation box once they finish.
