Growing up, i had to walk to school and it was a couple miles from home and we I did cut through peoples yards. However, when a property owner said stop cutting through my lawn I did. I understand what the OP is saying about respecting his yard/property. The fact of the matter is he's being disrespected all the way around and I'm sure thats frustrating. I guess we live in a different world where people just dont care about other people and other peoples belongings. Kids or not they need to respect others bottom line but I understand you can't make no one do anything these days.

So only solution i would see is a fence or as someone else mentioned video taping the whole situation and the frequency of each trespass and do something with it. The only way it'll probably come to light if is a kid gets hurt and not sure whose fault that would be.

Put up the fence. The iron kind so you can see who is walking by your property. If you put up the wood kind, they might use the fence to duck behind and hide and/or paint and vandalize.

A camera is a good suggestion from other posters. At least you can catch culprits in the act and report them/and or their parents.

This is really trespassing. While it is an idyllic suggestion to create a path and/or be-friend the kids, if something should happen, you as the homeowner would be held liable.

Good luck with your project and in handling the violators!
