It is certainly possible but would depend on how much time you spend at the top of Schilthorn and visiting each village.
For your information, the ascent to the top of Schilthorn involves taking a series of 4 gondolas starting in the valley in Stechelberg and passing through Gimmelwald, Mürren and Birg. A single journey takes about 45 minutes. Most visitors spend at least an hour at the top visiting the outdoor panorama deck and the James Bond museum, longer if you decide to have lunch or snacks at the restaurant. Most visitors will also visit the "Thrill Walk" one stop down at Birg.
Going back down, you could stop in Mürren and explore this lovely alpine village. And your kids might like to visit Allmendhubel Flower Park, a big adventure playground. This is accessed from a short funicular ride in Mürren that runs every 15 mins.
The gondola runs to the Schilthorn about every 30 mins and the last descent is around 6pm in the summer. The cable cars from Mürren to Stechelberg run much later. From Mürren you can also get back to the valley by taking the cable car and cogwheel train via Grutschalp to Lauterbrunnen.
If you would like to do all these things, best to catch the earliest cable car connection. In the summer especially, the lines can get quite long.
You can use the SBB timetable to plan your journey: www.myswissalps.com/timetable
