I have a 4 and 5 year old. They used to share a room for awhile. We would put one in our bed and then move them back once they were asleep. I also had to give up naps so they would be more tired going to bed.

hi jade i have a 5 yr old and an 18 mnth old that share a room to start with they were nightmares and would be chatting or playing untill stupid times or one was keeping the other awake.but i just got firm i sent the youngest to bed at 7 and the other at 8 obviously they protested for a few weeks and the little one would scream but it did work.it is hard because its easy to give in,we even tryed taking away anything that could be played with,no joy with that.just be firm,it will work you just have to perceviere.good luck

Maybe you could put the 3 year old down a half an hour before the 5 year old.  Hopefully the youngest will be asleep before the other goes down.
