Default Heating the second floor better

Hey guys. I'm trying to figure out a way to heat my kids room better on the second floor. Their rooms sit over the garage so that's one of the bad things about their rooms. I opened up the garage ceiling once to check and it looks like they put two layers of fiberglass bat. I'd like to open it all up one day and spray foam that whole area. But that won't be for a while.

The heat coming out of their vents is minimal. I think I've located which vent it is and there's not much I can do in the way of taping it up as it almost goes directly from the main square vent up into the ceiling in the basement, but I will tape what I can. The only thing I could think of was trying to pull out the vent that I can see, and try and put an inline duct fan into that vent to try and force some extra air up there.

I closed a few of the vents slightly in rooms where I didn't think we needed the heat as much, but I don't like to tamper with that too much as I don't want to kill my furnace.

Any suggestions?
