Bangkok Family Entertainment
Family Evenings in Bangkok
There are a reasonable but not overwhelming number of things that families can do in the evening in Bangkok. Most restaurants are very family friendly and it is not unusual in more informal establishments for a waiter or waitress to keep a child entertained a bit. Most restaurants don’t mind if the child roams around a little either.

Dreamworld - Bangkok
On weekends, Dreamworld, a kind of Thai "Disneyland" is open until 7 PM. In addition, many of Bangkok's large shopping malls have an area with kids rides and games.
A family nighttime Skytrain ride might be enjoyable. Hop on, ride to the end of the line and see the lights of Bangkok. See it from the other direction when you go back or perhaps take a tuk-tuk.
