Seing that you will travel with your 9 year old daughter , maybe you could try one of these:
If you decide to spend the extra night in Wengen , one of those days you could adventure in the Hasliberg region, going to Meiringen and taking your daughter on the Muggestutzweg (Dwarf Trail) . I think she'll love it (as did my sons, so much so, that they asked us to include this trail again, the next holiday). The first trail starts in Magisalp and ends in Bidmi. You take the cable car up from Meiringen to Reuti and then the gondola. Be sure to take the walnut from the cablecar station, it will be used later on the trail. You could first go all the way up to Alpen Tower to admire the views and then come down to Magisalp to start the trail. It is a trail which tells the adventures of the dwarfs Muggestutz and Raurinde and their friends. There are stations along the way which keep the kids entertained and interested - a pinecone drying station, a walnut slide, an eagle swing, dwarf houses with furniture inside, a labyrinth, etc... There is also a crystal to be found in one small cave. There is also a second trail, just a little bit further, from Kaserstatt to Lischen, which continues their adventures. The second time we went there, we knew to start earlier and so were able to do both in one day. But if you only have time to do one, choose the first.
If you decide to spend the extra night in Luzern , one of those days you could go again to Engelberg (as for Titlis) but this time go up on the cablecar to Ristis , then on the chairlift to Brunni and do with your daughter the Globi Treasure Hunt Trail (from Brunni to Ristis or the other way around, but we chose to do it downhill). Also at Brunni, aside from beautiful views, you will find a Tickle Path which goes around a small lake. It is a lot of fun. Bring spare clothes:). For the treasure hunt you need to borrow a treasure map for 5chf from Ristis kiosk. You also receive an answer sheet. There are treasure chests hidden along the trail which you find using the map. Inside the chests there are questions with multiple answers (german and english). You write on your answer sheet the letter that is near the correct answer. The letters form a word and at the end you go with your answer sheet at the Ristis restaurant, give it to the person there and pick up the prize. At Ristis there is also a great playground with a big waterplayground and also a Rhodelbahn.
In case of bad weather you could go to Winterthur at the Swiss Science Center Technorama. Winterthur is 84 km from Lucerne and 24km from Zurich. We were there with the kids( 7 and almost 6 years old at the time) from opening till closing time and not a minute of boredom or tiredness, not for us the adults, nor for them.
