Sea life centre in Birmingham itself if weather bad
Black country living museum
Haven't been to dudley zoo for years, but when I went, it was the most depressing zoo ever.
Coventry (short train ride) has a museum of motor transport which is a big hit with my DS (5)

Cadbury World (not cheap and you will need to book tickets in advance if going in half-term, but my children aged 7 and 10 really liked it).

The Think Tank has a nice play area for young children.

The Nature Centre combined with the park and perhaps lunch in the Mac (the Mac may well have a children's film or show on too).

Walking in the Lickey Hills (the visitor centre has a good playground).
