Default Student Permit question: restore or reapply???

My minor children (US citizens) had student permits for the previuos
academic year. I have not filed for a renewal on time, so the permits
expired. The children left Canada upon the permits expiration, so they
are not in violation, but they are now in Canada as visitors - they do
not require visas as they are US citizens. I need to get the permits
for my children for the next academic year, and now see 2 options:
either file for a restoration, or apply for brand new permits. Not
sure what to do...

They will have to apply again from outside Canada. There is no restoration
because they were never out of status. What is your status?

As US Citizens thay can also apply at a Port of Entry to canada , for
example at Windsor if coming from Detroit or Niagara Falls
If you are on a WP or SP yourself they can apply via Vegreville

Thank you, Jim!
I had to get a Temp. Visa for myself to stay in Canada with kids, even
though I am too a US citizen. I renewed my visa for another year.
Hypothetically, if the kids had stayed in Canada beyond their permits'
validity date, restoration would have been the only way to go, am I
right?
It just seems like such a pain gathering all the docs for new permits,
going to consulate, answering too many questions. And at the border,
the officers are not the most welocming people either.
On the other hand, if I were to claim that the kids are in Canada in
violation of their permits validity dates, how bad would it be for us
all? I wonder whether probability of being denied the permits is high
because of having been out of status...
