Any tips on getting out some relaxed and fun expressions out of kids between these ages? Things to say? Things to tell them to do? Things to tell them to say to each other?

Catch them off guard.

Take a few posed shots.

Say you need to change a setting or something so they relax from posing but keep shooting instead.

Fire off a few rounds in burst mode whilst muttering to yourself.

Should get a range of natural expressions. If lucky you'll get one or two frames with coinciding good expressions.

I was going to say, GOOD LUCK!! I can't get kids to listen to me at all. I ask them to look up, they look down, and so on. But Gungnir has some pretty decent advise. Well, good luck anyway with that. That's a tough one.
