My kids are 4 and 6, I figure if I get something nice now. We can use
it for years. I will probably just borrow a friend of mines telescope
for a while. At 4 and 6 their attention span is fairly short. They
will be using all the time for a week or two and then never touch it for
months or longer.=20

You didn't say how old the "kids" were. If you are talking about
10-year-olds, I would give you an argument for binoculars.

Alternatively, any ideas on where to get a good 4", 6" or 8" mirror to
make the telescope myself.
