honestly, pretending to kick each other doesn't sound like something that needs a big, grand consequence. Actually hurting eachother would be different. Sounds like they're doing it mostly to annoy eachother and you. So, don't take the bait and make a big deal out of it. Just separate them. Or conjoin them.
Actually, they already have them and DD1 especially always wears hers, so I'm not sure if that will help, lol.

They actually do hit and kick, but it isn't "forceful". I've tried ignoring it and not making a big deal but one of them comes crying. I don't think it is b/c they are really hurt, but more hurt feelings.

I do like Danner's post in excluding them from a family or joint activity. We like to be together and do things together so that might work.
