 New sugar glider dad - Need help

So I recently bought myself a pair of sugar gliders, their names are Monte and Whiskers. They are brother and sister, I got them last Saturday and today is Wednesday. I work quite a bit, and I find it hard to spend time with them because they wake up late and I wake up so early. So I try to spend my time with them a little bit after they wake up. But they are so shy to me, it's impossible to get them to come to me at the cage, and when they are out and I come close to the cage the boy usually runs back into his pouch. I rarely ever see the girl out, and to be honest, I'm having a really really hard time distinguishing the two apart. The boy is fixed. I don't know what to do to bond, for one, I'm afraid to take them out of their pouch because if I even come near their pouch they both crab at me, and I'm not going to lie it scares me every time. I have bought a tent for me to spend time with them and bond with them but I just don't know how to get them in there without placing the whole cage inside the tent and then opening their cage door. I really want to bond with them they are just so shy, I bring them treats and try to talk to them calmly and soothingly but they are just not warming up to me. They are joeys and they have only been oop since march. I'm just lost and feeling kind of down about it, I just really have no idea how to get them into the tent to bond to them. I can't even put any fleece inside their pouch because they are always in it. I'm confused and really need help. Thanks!
