The red rock landscape surrounding Sedona is a natural playground for kids, and it tends to make adults a little playful too. Many of the hotels are located by well-known rocks and you can get your kids involved by having them search for the landmarks. Snoopy, Bell Rock, Steamboat and Coffee Pot Rock are all easily identifiable.
When you arrive at a Sedona hotel with children, the staff know you're going to be looking for things to keep them busy and they're usually quite helpful. Some accommodations are by the creek and offer easy hikes, or access to playgrounds; a few have night watching areas with telescopes where you can scan the night sky. Most also supply their guests with free internet; and quite a few have mini-golf courses. Many of the hotels in Sedona have pools where you can attempt to tire out the children. Getting kids to tire out before you do isn't easy; we always end up exhausted in a deck chair, but it's good fun to try!
If you base your stay out of Uptown, you are within easy striking distance of Slide Rock State Park, the Trout Farm and Midgley Bridge which are all located up Oak Creek Canyon. Hotels located in West Sedona may be away from some of the touristy shops and restaurants, but Sunset Park is nearby, as is Harkins Theaters and the main grocery stores. Heading west of Sedona you can visit Out of Africa on a daytrip.
