Help with PSN accounts for the kids

Hi everyone - first post here so hope this is the right place.

I need a bit of advice please...

We have a PS3, PS4 and PS5 in the house. Me, as the supposed adult, owns the 5 and it is in the lounge. It uses my PSN account and Playstation Plus Membership. My two kids have a sub account on it and have each had for a while, although they use my main account too.

The PS4 is now in my son's room and the PS3 is in my youngest's room, as she is only 7 and is only now just discovering games.

However, they're now both into playing MIneCraft and connect with their friends. Currently, they do it on the 5 split screen. But my son is wanting to go play it in his room, as his sister annoys him sometimes :)

What is the score with the accounts? Can he load the 4 on his sub profile, then she plays on the 5 on my main profile or her sub profile? Or does it see that the main account is active in two places and not allow it?

I don't want to pay out for two PLaystation Plus accounts. I'm a bit confused so would welcome some clarification,,,

Thanks in advance
