For the past week the kids don't want to do tent time. We go in and they reluctantly come out of their pouch and then hide under the sheet I have in there and cuddle up and sleep. What the heck?? They just don't seem interested. Is something up or is it the moon?

It could be that they just aren't ready to play when you're taking them in there. I agree with Shelly - I think I'd go ahead and wait a while and do playtime later.

I will try that. Maybe they are cold? The house is always about 65. Although my sons room is a little warmer and that's where they are. They weather in NJ has been pretty mild for this time of year. Tent time we have always done at the same time about. Maybe they are just changing their schedule. I will try later.

My girls have been doing the same thing. I think they just want to sleep, so I am going to have tent time later in the evening.

you can also find ways to distract and entice them into playing when they first come out of their pouch. feathers work well with my girls.

some may disagree with my methods, but I wanted to be able to play with them before I went to bed, and I have to get up early for work...

so, i take my girls out around 830 and just give them a little snack of BML that i let them lick on my fingers. they go back to sleep after theyve had enough and then around 1030 I bring them into the tent, whether they are awake or not. once i started on this schedule and stuck to it, they now are pretty much expecting the 830 snack (although if im not home in time, they sleep through it no problem) and are up and about between 1030 and 11 on their own. last night, for example, i had to work late and then had an emergency run to the store to look for a space heater. by the time i got around to getting their food ready it was about 1030, and as soon as i opened their cage door their little heads popped out, ready to go. had to skip the snack though, and just went to tent time with extra healthy treats.

depending on what time they "normally" wake up on their own, you can try waking them up for play 15-20 min earlier for a few nights, and then another 15 or so minutes earlier and so on until they are used to the schedule that works best for both of you.
