If they have already molted and were leaving Momís back, they are ready to fend for themselves. They will not eat anything that is larger than about 1/3 their size. Just because they *seem* too slow to catch a cricket does not mean they are. Put in about 20 pinhead crickets (if they are all still in the same container) and let them have at them. Do not fret if some die, thatís natureís way, the strongest will survive.
Do you know how/why the mother died?
