Hello aadalisay, welcome to MySwissAlps,
Rockoyster is right. Zurich to Tirano and back will be a very, very long day (especially for kids). There’s also less daylight in December so you will be traveling in the dark as of 16.30. Extending your trip seems like a good idea to me.
You could consider taking the Bernina Express on your way south and taking a regional train (timetable here) back up to St. Moritz the same day and spend a night (or two) there. There are lots of winter activities to do. Information about accommodation can be found here.
If you still prefer to do the Bernina Express in one day, I suggest you spend a night in Chur to break up the trip. The old town is charming and offers a good choice of restaurants, but is less interesting (and fun!) for the children. There’s not a lot to do.
If you decide to extend your journey in St. Moritz / Graubünden, the Graubünden pass could be something you would like to explore. The rides with the Bernina Express are included and children from 6 to 15 years old travel for free with the Junior travelcard.
