If you keep putting them back in their bed they will eventually realize they arent getting into your bed and stop trying. But you have to be firm and not let them at all because if they get to sleep with you sometimes they will never stop trying! Also my daughter has special stuffed animals that she sleeps with, maybe if they have special night time pals they will feel more comfortable in their own beds.

Be firm and tell them no. Walk them back to their beds and keep walking them back to their beds everytime they come in to your room. Don't give in. My son knows he's not allowed in our bed and has given up trying to crawl in. He stands in the doorway and whispers "mommy" until I come get him. Usually he needs hugs and kisses and I tuck him back in bed and he goes back to sleep. If he seems upset I will rub his back for a few minutes until he starts to drift off.
