There's never a good time to tell your children about your marriage split and given their age and depending on how close your family is, there's a good chance that they could have an idea that's things are not well with mum and dad. Face to face, if possible, is the best way to let them know because not only is it respectful, it also gives both parties the chance to discuss an emotional issue in the presence of each other.
