Hello KJ, welcome to MySwissAlps,
A ZurichCARD might be a good option for a few days, but it only includes traveling in town and the immediate surroundings (links to more information are here). That might not fit your plans, at least not on all days. A Tell-Pass could be a good choice for Lucerne and the Lake Lucerne region, again depending on your plans. Please see here for what's covered. Last year this pass was free for anyone staying at least two nights between January and March, but I don't know whether this will be the case this year again, and whether December will be included too.
Do you have a list of day trips you intend to do? That should help picking a pass. Please see here for a step by step explanation. Note that the Swiss Pass is called Swiss Travel Pass now (see here for the difference). I think it could be the better and simpler option for you, allowing more flexibility on all days. All details can be found on myswissalps.com/swisst ravelpass. The children travel along for free.
I hope this helps to make a decision!
