Kids 7-12 years old in Zug for a week. Any ideas?

So my boyfriend's children are coming to Zug tomorrow as they have Autumn shool break now. They will stay here for a week and as my partner will be working and I am not so busy I would like them to have nice time. It is not my job to entertain them and perhaps I shouldn't worry too much as they have each other but I don't want them to be bored.

We will do swimming in Baar Latich and we might visit Roshi Atelier to finish painting they started last time they were here but what else can we do? They know Alpamare and Kinder Zoo in Arth Goldau buy they are 7 and 12 so we need something different, possibly some educational activities for older kids.
They are fluent English and French speakers and very nice kids, well behaving most of the times

If you are reading this and have a child similar age or know someone in Zug with children, possibly in similar situation please let me know. I think for them it would be very good to make some friends here as they are here every second weekend and how fun is it to be entertained by oldies?

Our kids had an absolute blast at Technorama in/near Winterthur, and we will probably make it a semi-regular thing.

How far do you want to travel? Vallorbe has a couple of interesting museums: iron and WWII underground bunker and a grotto to visit. Le Locle has the only remaining underground mill (no longer working sadly).

Are there any painting or ceramics classes for kids in Zurich?
Anyone heard of Yoga classes for children?

Vilette park in Cham, the Hollgroten caves in Baar, boat ride in Zugersee, snow skating in Bossard Arena are just some of your options.

Cinemas as well, lots of decent movies out right now to take them.

I would be interested in yoga classes for kids as well, preferably in Zug.

My kids (9 & 11) and I can´t get enough of the Transportation Museum (Verkehrshaus Museum) in Luzern, especially the media center and the outside play area. The restaurant is bigger/better than Lattich and has free internet access. The annual membership is totally worth it as we go there at least three times a year. The movie theater costs extra but has a great programming of documentaries.

It's a pity that Technorama isn't a bit closer to your place.. I'm sure they would like the whole thing, it would be fun/interesting even for the little one.
