2Bhutan indeed is an ideal place for holidays. Kids/adults loving activities like rafting, hiking, camping, farm house visitation, home-stay, horse-riding etc. I had an incredible experience of a tour around in Bhutan organized by Bhutan Mountain Holiday.

3Since you are planning to travel in October / November for two weeks with two active boys i would recommend you to do some cultural tours like visiting places like Paro, Thimphu, Punakha and Taksang Hike.
for children they will love to see festivals which held on 11 nov 2013 crane festival where your kids will love to interact with Bhutanese student, and i suggest you go with Bhutan Druk Adventure Travels.

5Tiger's nest is good - they can walk and ride horses up/down. I think spending some time in Thimpu would be best. Good hotels, good food, lots of kids, markets, shops, so likely a bit more fun for them. The Taj hotel has a heated pool - You should check whether it allows kids. Camping would also be fun if the gear is good.
