Hi dear,
Both of your kids are probably having flu like viral illness which can cause myalgia. Give them bed rest, paracetamol for body pain and they will be fine in two or three more days. As already said, Amox is not going to help. Keep the m hydrating well. As long as they are not drowsy, drinking some fluids, passing urine same as before you need not worry.

Take care
