Hello,
You first need to apply for your children's registration as British Citizens, after registration is granted, you may then apply for their British Passports.
You need to apply on form MN1

I suggest that you apply through the Nationality Checking Service of your local council as they will check the documents and application form for you and if in order, send it on to the Home Office for you.
May I help further?
