Welcome Claire, glad you're joining us!
The Swiss Travel Pass is an option indeed. You can best get a 4 day variant and buy regular tickets for either your first or last day in Switzerland. You can indeed get a free Swiss Family Card for both children. Explanation and resellers are listed at www.myswissalps.com/sw isstravelpass/price. The easiest option is to buy in advance through www.swissrailways.com: you can get both the Swiss Travel Pass and the free Swiss Family Card as print as home tickets without any additional fees.
An alternative is the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland, that allows for free traveling in this region, even as far as Bern. Many mountain trains and cable cars are fully covered too. This is a good option if you plan to focus on just this region and to make exensive use of mountain lifts. All details, including a validity overview and purchase options, are at the Regional-Pass Bernese Oberland page.
I hope you're able to choose. If not, please let us know.
