In brief: Sinus pain
There are multiple causes of this.
If he has a history of allergies that its possible this could be chronic sinusitis giving him chronic headaches. It could also be a structural abnormality such as a polyp. The best thing to do is to see a pcp and have him do a work up including imaging to see exactly what is going on and go from there.

In brief: Pain between eyes
Sinuses are communicated with the nose.
If she has posterior dripping of mucus, facial pain in the malar are ( between nose and cheek bones) or in the forehead may be related to the sinuses. It is hard to tell by your description what is going on. Bottom line...Better to take her to pediatrician.
