Save my kids and me from 5+ hours in the car

This summer (mid June) I am carting my family off to a wedding in Bloomington, IN. However, due to various issues, we are flying into and out of Chicago and then driving down. So I need suggests for where to stop along the way so that I don't kill my kids (5 and 2 years old), and they don't go crazy from boredom.

My kids are energetic little guys and while we are trying to plan it so that we hit nap time with them in the car, I figure we are going to have to stop a time or two along the road to let them get some running around out. So I turn to you MeFi for suggests of where along the route from Chicago to Bloomington, IN should we stop, what should we see? We will be going down there on a Friday (need to arrive in time for a rehearsal dinner that evening) and returning back to Chicago on a Sunday (after a post wedding brunch that morning).
We may also have a little time in Chicago on Monday morning, if there is anything fun to see, you can hit us with that too!
