I would suggest this:
The reasoning behind this: for a short first time visit Lucerne is a nicer place to spend time than Zurich. Also this plan prevents you from doing a return trip from Lucerne to Interlaken and back. You'll pass through Interlaken anyway on the Golden Pass line, so why not spend the night there and do a local day trip on the 26th or 27th. This also allows you to visit the Titlis on either the 25th or morning of the 26th, whenever the weather is best. Another option is to skip the night in Montreux and do the entire trip from Interlaken to Geneva early on the 28th, in order to have an extra day in Interlaken. Please see the above links for more information like activities, hotel suggestions, etc.
There is a shop that rents gear at the Titlis valley station. It will be cold up there!
A Swiss Half Fare Card will probably be the cheapest option. With a Swiss Flexi Pass though, you don't have to buy tickets all the time, so that's more convenient. The children travel for free, see the pass pages.
