Make your room off limits and close them in theirs. If they can open the door, lock your bedroom door. Don't let them play before bed and make sure they don't eat or drink anything besides water for an hr or two before sleep time. Wind them down with a routine. Bath, books, then bed. They'll get the hang of it quickly.

How long do they stay up doing that? My son and daughter *7 and 4 1/2* have bunk beds in their room and do the hwole tlaking laughing thing as well. What I started doing was having them go to bed at 8 and I put on a movie, the rule is I give them 1 warning if I hear laughing, giggling, or playing and then the movie goes off...most nights I don't usually have to go in there, and by time the 70 minute movie is over they are both pretty much dead to the world.

Maybe try to start out with them separated. And make it a clear point that they are to sleep in their own bed, that's why they have one, then lay them back down in their bed.
