You can transfer some to them and then transfer the whole lot back to you I think
Only issue with that (in my experience) is that QF store points take a long time to hit the account.Easiest way is just to buy something cheap (or even expensive) online through the Qantas estore using their QFF details, or through others that are linked to Qantas.
ie on ebay you can probably find some thing for a few $ with free delivery.

I may be wrong but I thought they got rid of that years ago. Though it may be the velocity program I am thinking of.
The OP is only talking about the kids expiring - if they are put into the OP account then should be OK
If the OP transfers points to the child's account and then transfers them back the child's points are now aligned to the OPs account. I have been doing this for years and once the points are back in my account they have not expired.
It's not about creating activity on the kids account. This is about moving the points to an account that has current activity and will not expiry.According to Qantas Website:
What are Family transfers?Family Transfers enable you to transfer a portion of your points to an eligible family member, who is also a Frequent Flyer member, in any 12-month period.Family transfers don't count as activity on your account, or the account you transfer points to, for the purpose of preventing your points from expiring.
Also according to Point Hacks;
If you have the points you can transfer at least 5000 to the child account and then transfer back their whole balance to you.
For example, child account has 3800 points. You transfer 5000 to child's account then transfer 8800 points fom child's account back to you. Done this a couple of times.
Alternatively go to eBay via this link (https://shopping.qantas.com/ebay) and buy something cheap - as suggested above.
