haha, seems like oslo is only museums. and for 3 days, youll have more enough time to see the good ones like the viking and outdoor folk museum at least. Besides that, there is an amusement park a short bus ride away: https://www.tusenfryd.no/

Or you can take a boat to a neighboring island and have a beach/picnic day. Boats are at aker brygge.

As suggested previously, you can go to visitoslo and see event calendar as this city caters alot to children...

Go for a walk in the woods: Take the T-bane to Sognsvann and walk around the lake. You can also picnic up there. Lots of space for the kids to run and play, but best to avoid Saturday or Sunday.
Also, take the ferry that goes to the islands in Oslo fjord. It costs the same as the bus and is a nice trip if the weather is good.
A typical Norwegian summer day would include a day in the woods or at the beach. The number 30 bus will take you to Huk, and after a 10 minutes stroll through the woods (plenty of room for a stroller) you will arrive at Paradisbukta. Perfect for kids of all ages.

There are loads of places to swim in the woods, and many of them will have all the facilities needed. At Nøkkelvann you will find the very typical Norwegian "Markastue" called Rustadsaga, where they serve traditional Norwegian food and bakery and where you can pet the goats, hens and pigs. You might be able to rent a kayak there too.

If a trip to the woods comes out a bit too Norwegian, you can borrow a kayak or canoe for paddling the Aker river (Akerselva). Or you can head down to Sørenga, the city centre swimming area. This is close to the opera and should be combined with a stroll on the roof. They used to sell ice cream at the top, but I am not sure if they do that anymore.

The small ferries to the small islands is also very nice. Take the ferry to Hovedøya, have a nice walk end perhaps a swim before you have a picnic. The kids will sell drinks and ice-cream.

If you think the wood sounds nice - google it. There must be loads and loads of tips on where to go or what to do.
