  • give them a flashlight from the dollar store. They can make shdow puppets while they fall asleep to keep their mind off the dark.

  • Why don't you get them a nightlight?

  • What about a lamp or night light with an energy efficient bulb? The light itself shouldn't be using that much power. If your bill is really high, try looking for other causes -- poor insulation around windows and doors or in the attic if you have one. a/c or heat running too often, hot water leak.  Maybe post a question about energy saving tips, as well.
