Basically, your 8 year old is fine. The 5 year old will require a car seat or booster seat. The law is anyone under the age of 6 years old AND 60 pounds is required to have a car seat or booster seat.

Also your kids are not old enough to sit in the front seat so make sure they both stay in the back. It has to do with how dangerous the airbag is for kids.

under 1 and under 20 lbs MUST sit rear facing

under 6 years or 60 lbs MUST be in a booster seat

No child under age 12 should sit in the front seat.
