I noticed in one of your other posts that you live in Australia. Shipping would take a couple of working days, but it depends on the pass: the Swiss Half Fare Card will be shipped from Europe (at least 5 working days) and the others from Australia.
I would recommend to look into the Swiss Half Fare Card
if you have planned short local trips, or the Swiss Saver Pass
if you intend to make long day trips. In both cases, the children will travel along for free, so you only need to pay for the adults. Both passes will be valid until either Chiasso or Domodossola when you're traveling to Italy. Tickets to Italy can be purchased via the timetable
Regarding day trips: I'm not really familiar with winter day trips in that area, but some suggestions are city trips to Lausanne or Bern or scenic train rides such as Zweisimmen - Montreux (the Golden Pass route).
I hope this get's you going!
