Welcome to MySwissAlps AKhan!
When exactly are you visiting Zurich? December is the best time to experience Zurich in its most festive season. Plenty of acitivities to do to fill up your time such as visiting the Christmas markets. The yearly Christmas Market at the Zurich main station will be held this year from 21 Nov to 24 Dec. There's also a bigger one in front of the Opera House at Sechseläutenplatz, with an outdoor skating rink that I'm sure your kids would love trying out. It can get a bit crowded though. I would usually take my kids to the Polyterrasse skating rink at the ETH Zürich, less people, shorter lines. To get there you take the Polybahn from the Central tram stop. You get a good view of the city from the terrace. I'm not too sure if the skating rink will be open again this year but you can check this link for updates:

Lucerne has a Christmas market too, as well as in other towns and cities if you fancy exploring them :)

You can also go on a boat ride and combine it with a visit to the Lindt Chocolate Factory., or visit the Rhine Falls. For more ideas what to do in Zurich, please see these links:
The Glacier Express runs all year (except for a short period between late Oct - early Dec), so yes that could be an option for you too. To help you plan your journey from Zurich, please see this link:
