When you buy your train ticket at Schiphol train station, then ask for a 'Dagretour' or day-return-ticket. It's 7,10 euro (that's cheaper than 2x 3,70 euro) and you can just hop on the train back to Schiphol in the evening.

Also, if you want to go to Zaanse Schans straight from Schiphol, then do as follows:

The ticket will cost you 12.40 euro and the train ride is just over 30 minutes, with one change at Amsterdam Sloterdijk. There are 4 of these trains per hour.
