Yes, from the shopping card software and/or website just create three different links and/or price entries for PayPal.

Example, drop box and/or buttons:
$150 - 1 Child
$260 - 2 Children
$330 - 3 Children

Are you using PayPal for your "inventory" or sending the payment amount to PayPal?

I'm just sending the amount paypal. I am going to have a form that collect the registration online and then send to paypal to pay. I was orginally going to have a separate form for each kid, but when I found out about the discounted rate for more than 1 kids, I was thinking that I have to have all the info on one form. I don't have to use paypal if there is better way to do this. Thans

What ecommerce solution are you using? Most have PayPal integration and how best to do it would be directly determined by the solution in use.

Are you doing recurring payments?  I would look at the Quantum Gateway - they will handle recurring payments, and all credit information is stored on their servers. The gateway is $8.00, no transaction fee, and has a ton of built in vetting procedures.  

Plus, you can swipe the cards at your location with a their swipe as well and choose to store the credit card numbers.  If their is not an API, let me know so I can add one.  Everything - the discounts, etc will be handled on your side, where it should be.
